The Most Delicious Gluten Free Egg Free Sugar Cookies

Most people think gluten free cookies have to be dense and grainy, but that is not the case.  I LOVE this sugar cookie recipe.  I could seriously sit down and eat an entire plate of these…which I may or may not have done. 😉

We have no egg allergies in my house, but I am a cookie dough lover.  The fact that this recipe is egg free makes sampling the raw cookie dough ok.

Frosting
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup almond milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

1.  Combine almond milk and vanilla.

2.  Using a mixer slowly add the powdered sugar.  It shouldn’t be super thin.  If it is too thin then add more sugar, a little bit at a time.  If you want colored frosting you can mix in a few drops of coloring at this time.

3.  Drizzle on the top of cookies.  Remember that it will harden slightly.

Tips:
You can substitute real milk or soy milk instead of almond milk if you would like.  You can also substitute non-hydrogenated oil margarine if you want instead of butter.
