It’s already December! Which means it’s time to get our holiday cheer on! December is probably my favorite month. I love everything about it: the snow, decorating, family gatherings, warm fires, hot cocoa, and of course, baking! It’s time to pull out those holiday recipes and even try some new ones! One of my favorite things to bake are these Paleo Sugar Cookies!
These paleo sugar cookies are grain-free, gluten-free, nut free, and corn free! I love their texture and they taste delicious! Even though they have quite a bit of coconut flour in them, they do not have a strong coconut flavor. The dough is very easy to work with, which is something that I always consider when I have to roll out dough. I can easily handle it without it sticking all over my fingers and hands.
After I found a sugar cookie recipe that I could make, I had to find a frosting recipe. What’s a sugar cookie without frosting!? The frosting recipe was a little harder to nail down. I had to make something that was not too buttery and did not have little sugar crystals in it. Maple syrup would not do because it turned the frosting brown, which is ok if you like brown frosting. I finally settled on a combination of butter, vanilla extract, coconut milk, and powdered xyla. The frosting is easy to use and tastes delicious with the paleo sugar cookies.
There are always three layers to a good sugar cookie, the cookie, the frosting, and the toppings. So far I have the cookie and the frosting, now it’s time for the toppings! I love decorating my sugar cookies. Here are some decorating ideas that I use!
- Xyla sprinkles: I use all natural food coloring to dye xyla sugar to sprinkle on my cookies
- Let’s Do…Organic: Sprinkelz– these sprinkles are organic and gluten-free
- India Tree Natural Decorating vegetable colorations: I use this all natural brand of food coloring to color my frosting or sprinkles
- Beet powder- Beet powder can be used to color frosting red or pink
Alright! Now that we have covered all our bases, lets get onto the recipe!
