Gluten free sugar cookies, cut and baked, then decorated with creamy and delicious matcha infused frosting.


Scale

Ingredients

FOR THE GF SUGAR COOKIES:

3/4 cups vegan butter (or real butter softened)

1 cups white sugar

2 eggs

2 tsp GF Vanilla (seeds from vanilla bean will also do)

2 1/2 cups gf flour (Bob’s Redmill 1 to 1)

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

FOR THE MATCHA FROSTING:

1 cup organic shortening (or butter)

1 tsp GF Vanilla

2 tsp Pure Orangic Matcha Culinary powder + extra for garnish.

1.5 cups confectioners sugar

Wilton tip 1M.


Instructions

FOR GF THE SUGAR COOKIES:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Cream together butter and sugar in a mixing bowl, until combined.

Mix in eggs and vanilla until combined.

Stir in flour, baking powder and salt, 1/3rd at a time.

Mix on med-hi until combined.

You’ll know your cookie mix is ready when it pulls away from the mixing bowl. (If still too wet, add a dash more flour to the dough)

Roll dough out onto parchment surface dusted with flour (about 1/2 inch thick.)

Cut cookie dough into 1 3/4″ round shapes using a small cutter or shot glass.

Bake cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet for 4 minutes. (Pull from oven before brown and be careful not to over-bake)

Remove from heat and cool.

FOR THE MATCHA FROSTING:

Pour all ingredients into the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix together until fully incorporated.

Transfer to a piping bag fitted with Wilton tip 1M.

HOW TO PIPE ROSETTES:

Hold the piping bag directly above the center of a cooled cookie. Squeeze a small amount of frosting into the center of the cookie, then continue squeezing the frosting, while turning the piping bag in a circular motion around the cookie. Continue this motion until the entire cookie is piped with frosting to form a rosette. 

Dust finished cookies with matcha powder.

Serve and enjoy!
