These Sugar cookies! small crunchy delicious, without any gluten or gum or soy or palm oil.
Last week was quite cloudy and dreary and my motivation was slipping. I was wondering about what to do in the new year and was coming up empty. so I was trying to vegan-ize a few more Indian sweets to keep the brain cells going.
*On that note, My Indian Desserts Ebook is currently on Sale till 24th December 2013 for $2 instead of $5. It has 15 recipes of Vegan-ized Indian Sweets like Gulab Jamun, Rasmalai, Mysore Pak, Rasgulla, Kesar Barfi, Besan Laddoo and many more. Buy it here. :)** this book is currently not available since it will get incorporated in my print cookbook which will have even more desserts that are not in the e-book or the blog.
I was working with coconut flour last week on some other Indian sweets recipes for next year’s festivals(there are so many different desserts from different parts of India!). The flour was sitting out on the counter, and I had a feeling that it would work beautifully in gluten-free treats. And it did work amazingly to reduce the quantity and hence the stronger taste of brown rice flour.
These sugar cookies are crunchy, crumbly, sweet, flavored with vanilla and coated up in chocolate. Use your favorite frosting, add sprinkles to the dough, make fun shapes!
I took a few to the Bake sale at Vegan Haven in Seattle, along with some Jar gifts and some Chewy Chocolate Chip cookies. If you picked up any of my goodies from the sale, do drop me a line:)

Pat the dough down and cut cookies in desired shapes. Gather remaining dough and pat it down again to cut up cookies or shape some into balls and flatten them.
