Gluten-free and non-gluten-free cookie lovers will gobble up these GF Snickerdoodle Cookies in record time. Soft crinkles on top of a delicious tender cookie. And you can even make them dairy, soy, nut, and egg-free without losing one single ounce of flavor or tenderness.
Weight watcher points plus can count each cookie at 4 points each.
These gluten-free snickerdoodle cookies are rolled in all that wonderful cinnamon and sugar that sticks to your lips after every bite; just like the original snickerdoodle cookies. So soft and chewy and delicious.
Butter ~ Organic Shortening or Earth Balance Buttery Sticks for dairy-free.
Eggs or egg replacer (I used Ener-G Egg Replacer) or Duck eggs when available
Garbanzo bean flour
Baking powder ~ corn-free if needed
Xanthan gum or guar gum ~ (guar gum for corn-free)
Sugar & cinnamon mixture
Note: I rarely spray my cookie sheets with a non-stick spray before baking; I find there is enough butter in the recipe to prevent sticking. I prefer to line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Store in an airtight container or freeze.
