I was hoping to find a nice cut-out cookie that was vegan and gluten-free. My daughter found a recipe on-line and this is the simplified version that we came up with. Grateful for my daughters help making these cookies and they taste great (not too sweet, but a treat).
1/2 c. coconut oil
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. applesauce
1 tsp. lemon flavoring or rind from 1/2 a lemon (shredded fine)
1 1/4 tsp. baking powder
2 c. gluten-free oat flour
1/2 c. sorghum flour
1/4 tsp. salt
Mix wet ingredients together & melt in a pot (if needed). Mix dry ingredients together, then mix in the wet ingredients. Put dough in a covered container or plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Put parchment paper on top of cookie sheet. Push dough a little flatter with hands, then place another layer of parchment paper on the top, then roll until about 1/8-1/4 inch thick with a rolling pin. Remove top layer of parchment paper and do your cut-out shapes. Take away the edge pieces and roll out on another sheet. May decorate as you wish. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden.
