Snowball Cookies(gluten free, dairy free, soy free,nut-free,seed-free, corn-free, chemical and color free.)
Easy and delicious.
Abby can eat a ton of these cookies(so can I!!!). We were worried that when we made them gluten free and everything else free they would lose their magic, but she gave them a double thumbs up. We have never used nuts in our version so maybe that made removing the rest of the allergens a little bit easier for us.
1 cup palm shortening, room temperature.
1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar(homemade or corn-free)
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla(homemade)
2 1/2cups GF Flour Mix
1 1/2 tsp guar Gum
3/4 tsp salt
Heat oven to 400. Mix thoroughly shortening, sugar, egg & vanilla. Work in flour and salt until the dough holds together. Cover & chill for 1 hour or so. Shape dough into 1-inch balls(they are a little crumbly but I worked them as they warmed in my hand they shaped better). Place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 7-9 minutes or until set, but not brown(mine cracked a bit when finished which the sugar covers). I only needed to keep them in for 8 1/2 minutes. Let cookies cool slightly – 5-10 minutes. While still warm, roll cookies in powdered sugar. Set on cooling rack to complete cooling. Roll again in sugar once they are cool.
