You can make this up ahead of time and keep the dough wrapped up in a freezer container or plastic wrap to take out and roll out, as needed, when you are in the mood to make some cut-up sugar cookies.
Baking and cooking from scratch can be a fun family project. Everyone loves fresh made goodies. Why not make some today? (Amazon links included)
- ½ cup Margarine
- 11/4 cup Sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 Tbsp CF milk alternative
- (rice, hemp, almond, potato,
- soy (if tolerated))
- 1 tsp. Vanilla
- 1 ½ cup Flour Mix (see below)
- 1 ½ tsp Baking Powder
- pinch of salt
Cream together the margarine and sugar. In a separate bowl, stir in the eggs, “milk” and vanilla. In a third bowl, mix the dry ingredients together, alternately adding the egg and flour mixtures to the margarine/sugar mixture. After mixing together, divide into 4 balls. (You might have to use your hands). Chill for 1-2 hours. Roll out onto a GF floured surface or use powdered sugar. Cut into shapes. Bake at 375 degrees for ~ 10 minutes.
