I got this recipe from one of my husband's students, Kate, whose husband makes them for their celiac daughter.  What a great dad!  This recipe makes a lot of cookies -- 4-5 dozen!  We couldn't eat them all, so I sent them to school with my husband and his students ate them up for us :).


3-3/4 Cups gluten free rice powder flour mix
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 tsp xanthan gum
1 Cup butter or margarine
2 Cups sugar
2 eggs
1/4 Cup milk
1 tsp vanilla

6 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon

Grease cookie sheets.  Stir together flour, soda, cream of tartar, salt and xanthan gum in a bowl.  In another large bowl, beat butter for 30 seconds; add 2 Cups sugar and beat until fluffy.

Add eggs, milk and vanilla; beat well.

Add dry ingredients to beaten mixture until well combined.

Mix together 6 Tbsp sugar with 2 tsp ground cinnamon in a small bowl.  Form dough into 1 inch balls; roll in mixture.  (You'll probably have some sugar/cinnamon mix left over.  Too bad -- guess you'll have to sprinkle it on toast :).

Place balls 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheet. 

Bake at 375 about 8 minutes or until golden.

Gobble up with your favorite beverage.

You're gonna love 'em!


  1. I tried another gluten free recipe and was very disappointed with the results because they were so grainy. These were absolutely wonderful the flavor and texture both. I had to run some across the street to a couple of friends that try to go gluten free. I didn't have enough of the rice powder flour mix so 1/3 of the flour was the feather light mix.

  2. Glad you liked them! Cookies seem like the hardest thing to duplicate when eating gluten free! Thanks for your comment.
