Gluten Free Snickerdoodle cookies

Was looking for a nutfree, chocolate-free, gluten-free cookie recipe and remembered snickerdoodles! I love this blog so I started with her recipe and reduced the sugar.  Actually the rice flour in these is very good- gives it a sandy texture. And who doesn't love browned butter?


Brown 13 TB butter. Pour into heatproof container and cool.

Mix up:
2.5 C gluten free flour (I use a mix that is predominantly brown rice flour, with some potato starch and tapioca starch)
1 tsp xanthan gum
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Now combine with the wet:
2 eggs
vanilla extract
the browned butter from above

Shape into a log, roll in wax paper and refrigerate at least 1 hour.

Prepare a plate with chunky turbinado sugar and/or regular sugar and cinnamon.

Slice the log into 1/3 - 1/2 inch thick slices.  Push each cookie dough disc into the sugar/cinnamon and flatten a bit to soften the cut edges. Place on cookie sheet.

Bake at 350F until firm- it took my oven 15-18 minutes with two cookie sheets baking at the same time.
