Welcome to Day 2 of #AKCookieWeek 2019!
I’ve officially been doing cookie week for a few years now and it continues to be one of the most challenging, yet rewarding themed-weeks. I think I tested each of the cookie recipes at least 3-5x each to make sure they were no-fail recipes.
I’ll admit, getting a cookie to be absolutely perfect can be frustrating, especially when working with non-traditional flours, but if anyone can do it, it’s this ambitious chick (aka me.) That’s the attitude I like to have about most things anyway, but even more so when it comes to cookies. Heh.
This year, I really tried to challenge myself to develop cookie recipes to satisfy various dietary needs. Many AK readers love my paleo-friendly, gluten free or dairy free recipes and continue to request more of them; so I thought, why not try to make a SOFT CUT OUT SUGAR COOKIE that was not only gluten free, grain free and paleo-friendly, but also easily dairy free.
After several attempts and different flour ratios, I present you with these glorious gluten free sugar cookies that hold their shape perfectly when baked and taste just like the real deal sugar cookie you know and love.

These healthier sugar cookies are based off my soft almond flour sugar cookies, except with a few modifications to make sure they could be rolled out and still keep their shape upon baking. Of course, they’re much better for you than traditional sugar…
