Buttery, sweet and tender. These sugar cookies hit the mark for a terrific gluten-free option.

Ingredients

Cookies

1
cup granulated sugar (raw sugar)
1/2
cup shortening (I personally would use more "butter", shortening isn't an option for me but there are non soy shortenings that exist. I have only seen these types of alternatives at Whole Foods and other store similar)
1/2
cup butter, softened (Smart Balance)
2
teaspoons gluten-free vanilla
1
egg
2 1/2
cups Betty Crocker™ All-Purpose Gluten Free Rice Flour Blend (use your favorite GF All-Purpose flour mix, I prefer Bob's Red Mill)
1/2
teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
1/4
teaspoon salt (kosher salt)

Glaze

1
cup powdered sugar
2
tablespoons milk (lactose free or non dairy)

Directions

  • 1 In large bowl, beat granulated sugar, shortening and softened butter with electric mixer on medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. On low speed, beat in vanilla and egg. Stir in flour blend, baking powder and salt until well mixed. Divide dough in half; shape each half into disk. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate about 1 hour or until firm.
  • 2 Heat oven to 375°F. On work surface lightly sprinkled with flour blend, roll each half of dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with 2 1/2-inch cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • 3 Bake 8 to 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Let stand 2 minutes on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes. Stir together Glaze ingredients. Spread on cookies. Sprinkle with additional granulated sugar, if desired.

Hough Bakery - butter cookies

Hough Bakery By Gail Greenberg&Diane Rolfe Hough Bakery was an integral part of me and my family's lives, (most people in Cleveland for that matter) I was heartbroken when they closed. I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
