Snickerdoodle Cookies: Gluten Free, Dairy Free & Egg Free {Recipe}

Snickerdoodles Gluten Free Dairy Free Egg Free
It's holiday cookie baking season, so that means I've got to adapt recipes I've been making for years to fit our dietary changes. 

This one was much easier to adapt than I anticipated and the cookies are much like the original version. Soft and cakes inside and plenty of cinnamon flavor in each bite. 

I hope you enjoy! 

Snickerdoodle Cookies 
Recipe by: Patsy Kreitman 

  • 2 3/4 cups (344 grams) Gluten Free Flour (I use King Arthur Measure for Measure)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 cup dairy free butter (I use Earth Balance buttery sticks)
  • 1 1/2 cups (200 grams) granulated sugar
  • 2 flax eggs (I use Bob's Red Mill ground flax - mixed according to package directions for 2 egg equivalent)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon 
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare 2 large baking sheets by lining with parchment paper and set aside. 
  2. Sift together gluten free flour, baking powder and salt and set aside. 
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add non dairy butter and sugar and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy - around 2-3 minutes. 
  4. Add in flax eggs and reduce speed to low; then gradually add flour mixture until well combined. 
  5. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes to allow the dough to "rest" - this allows the flour to hydrate properly before baking. 
  6. Mix the 2 teaspoons of cinnamon with the 2 tablespoons of sugar in a small bowl. 
  7. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and using a small cookie scoop portion out about 1 tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball, then roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Place on prepared baking sheets about an inch apart. 
  8. Bake for about 15 minutes or until they begin to get slightly golden in color. 
  9. Allow to cool on baking sheets on wire racks.
