Cinnamon Sugar Cookies – Gluten and Dairy Free

I have been experimenting with this recipe from the Bruce Fife cookbook, Cooking with Coconut Flour for a while and finally mastered

These delicious cookies contain no gluten or dairy.

4 egg

3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup butter melted (we use Earth Balance – Soy Free)

3/4 cup sifted coconut flour

Combine eggs, sugar, salt, vanilla, and butter and mix well.

Stir in coconut flour.  Let sit for 5 minutes to thicken.

Combine 2 teaspoons cinnamon and 1 tablespoon sugar on plate.

Form dough into 1 1/2 inch balls and roll in cinnamon mixture, coating thoroughly.

Place on cookie sheet 1 1/2 inches apart; flatten ball to diameter of about 2 inches.

Bake at 375 F for 15 minutes.  Makes about 2 dozen cookies.

I have found I need to pack the coconut flour before sifting or my dough is too sticky/moist.

I also end up using a lot more sugar and cinnamon to coat the cookies.

Cooking for 15 minutes will tend to produce a softer cookie.  Cooking for an additional few minutes will produce a golden brown cookie that is a little crisp.

Make in bulk and store in the freezer, and defrost as needed.
