Cookies that even Darth Vadar will Love

A good friend of ours hosted an outdoors showing (using a projector and his white siding) of Star   Wars complete with a themed party!  It was a blast.  I made sugar cookies for my boys (allergen free) so they could enjoy sugar cookies just like their friends.  I adapted an old favorite sugar cookie recipe so that the boys could eat it.  It was a yummy success!

Sugar cookie recipe:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

1 1/2 cup sifted corn free powdered sugar (I suggest regrinding if "lumpy")
1 cup butter (Earthbalance Soy Free)
1 Egg or 1 1/2 tsp egg replacer mixed with 1/4 cup water
1/2 tsp. almond flavoring (I like Frontier brand flavorings)
1 tsp. Bob's Red Mill baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla (I like Frontier brand flavorings)
1 tsp. cream of tartar (my secret ingredient)
2 1/2 cup Gluten Free Flour mix (Bette Hagmann's blend recipe, featherlight or the regular GF works best)
2 tsp. gar gum or xanthum gum

Cream butter and sugar until mixed
Add egg and flavorings
Stir in sifted ingredients

Chill 2-3 hours or overnight
Bake at 375 degrees 7-8 minutes

This dough will be crumbly, work carefully and patiently.  It will not hold together like regular sugar cookie dough.

Dough is a bit crumbly, it takes a bit of Patience.

Turned out super well and yummy!

Waiting for Jedi training.
