  • 1 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 122 oz. bag of Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Baking Flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, combine 3 Tablespoons ground flax with 1/3 cup warm water. (This will make your flax eggs.) . Allow it to thicken for five minutes.
  2. Using an upright mixer on low speed, cream together 1 cup Earth Balance butter, thickened flax meal, granulated sugar and pure vanilla extract.
  3. Add one complete 22 oz. bag of Gluten Free Baking Flour, baking powder and salt to the bowl. Mix it again until the dough comes together.
  4. Roll the dough to 1/4 inch thick and cut out your favorite shapes.
  5. Bake the shapes on an un-greased cookie sheet for 8 minutes or until puffed. Allow the cookies to sit on the pan for a couple of minutes before removing.

If you don’t need these cookies to be dairy free you can use regular butter instead of Earth Balance butter.

If you don’t need these cookies to be egg free, you can substitute real eggs for the flax egg.
