Gluten Free Red Velvet Sugar Cookies

  • 1 3/4 cups, I used Bob’s Mill Gluten Free Flour Blend 1:1 (or use gluten free all purpose flour blend)
  • 3 T cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp white vinegar (can substitute lemon juice)
  • 1 T red food coloring

Cream Cheese Frosting


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the gluten free flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt and set aside.
  2. Using an electric or stand mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and beat until incorporated.
  3. Scrape the sides of bowl, add the vanilla extract, white vinegar and red food coloring and beat until well combined.
  4. Beat in the dry mixture a third at a time, scraping the bowl after each addition.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and drop 12 balls of batter using a cookie scoop. (about 2 tablespoons each). Place the baking sheet into the fridge to chill for 20 minutes.
  6. Once you are ready to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 350°. Take the baking sheet of the refrigerator and flatten the dough balls into disk shapes using the palm of your hand.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes, remove from oven and transfer to a cooling rack.
