Gluten Free Butter Cookies

My mom gave me a set of 3 cookie stamps a couple of years ago, and this is the fantastic recipe on the side of the box with a few modifications! You can easily spice up this recipe with frosting, glitter or anything else you choose, or you can leave it as is!

Gluten Free Butter Cookies

Prep Time2 hours
Cook Time10 minutes
Servings: 10


  • 1 Large Bowl


  • 1 1/3 cups Gluten Free Flour I use King Arthur 1:1 Mix
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1/2 cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 tsp Almond Extract optional


  • Cream together the butter and sugar with an electric hand mixer, or by hand until fluffy. Then add in the egg, vanilla extract, and almond extract if using.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the gluten free flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the flour mixture into the rest of the mixture and mix until well blended.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 2-3 hours. Remove from the fridge and allow the dough to soften for a few minutes.
  • Roll the dough into golf-sized size pieces and press with a floured cookie stamp. Place on a large sheet tray lined with baking parchment.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool, then top with decoration or frosting, or leave as is! Store in a covered container at room temperature.
