Is there any way to make this without gelatin so they are vegetarian friendly? Thanks!
December 11, 2010 at 10:08 pm
you can omit the gelatin without any problems, I've done it in the past. 🙂

Do you think this dough would work as slice and bake dough?
October 6, 2011 at 4:52 pm
Hi Lindsay, I think if you refrigerate the dough ahead of time, you should be able to slice & bake no problem! They would be really cute if you rolled the dough into logs, rolled the outside of the log in a coloured course sugar, and then sliced & baked. I may need to try that! 🙂

Glad I found this recipe. Just wondering if you have ever frozen these?
I just put my first batch into the fridge and will bake them off tomorrow morning. Was a bit worried when they seemed a bit like a batter instead of a dough but after beating for a couple minutes more they seemed to firm up, I’m guessing that the gelatin just had to activate. Glad I didn’t jump the gun and add more flour!

Actually, I have frozen them without any problems! I froze them with sugar on top though, not icing. If I were wanting them iced, I’d probably freeze them plain, and let them defrost before icing them. To get the sugar to stick, if it’s not on it’s own, you can brush the tops of the cookies with water before turning them over or sprinkling them with coloured sugar.

Thanks Jeanine! My husband LOVES the hard icing so I’ll probably freeze them un-iced and then pull them out a couple days before Christmas and ice them.
Great recipe, they were a hit in our house!

No problem, glad to hear they were a hit though! Guess that means they didn’t last very long then, huh? 🙂

Made these for my daughter (who has Celiac Disease) to take to a Christmas cookie decorating party. They were delicious, of a nice texture, and only a little of that powdery after taste. I found the dough easy to work. I did notice that in your recipe you omitted from the instructions when to add the sugar. I added it with the eggs, vanilla and milk. I’ll be sharing this recipe with friends.

Thanks for the note, Lynn! I’ll be sure to add that to the instructions. Glad to hear that your daughter was able to participate as well! 🙂

The slight powdery taste that I mentioned totally disappeared after a day or two. These cookies actually got better with age. They were so good, I’ve got another batch chilling in the fridge now.
December 20, 2011 at 9:53 am
Perfect! yes, these cookies are actually best after a few days, that’s what I’ve found with a few other cookies too (snickerdoodles being another).

Should be OK – just omit the salt. 🙂 I do have a new sugar cookie recipe that I prefer, if you’re looking for another: http://www.thebakingbeauties.com/2012/11/gluten-free-rolled-sugar-cookies.html
