I love all the preparation that goes into the holidays, most of all I love baking scrumptious cookies with my daughter. Since we have become gluten free, we can’t make the same cookies we used to, so I have looked for other recipes that we can make that will be equally as good!
I have been using a lot of coconut flour lately; I love the amazing scent it has. I thought I would try this sugar cookie recipe using coconut flour.
When you use this flour you don’t use a large amount of it, but you do end up using a fair amount of eggs as it needs the moisture, and it has a wonderful texture when baked. These are just the start of our holiday baking, more to come!
