Ingredients
  

  • 1 ½ cups gluten free flour blend *see note
  • ½ cup cocoa powder unsweetened
  • teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup organic sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup butter melted

Frosting

  • 3 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • ½ cup butter
  • food colorings
  • 3-4 tablespoons of water depending on how stiff you want your frosting

Instructions
 

  • In a large mixer, add all wet ingredients and mix.
  • Add in the dry ingredients slowly.
  • Remove the dough and wrap in plastic wrap.
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350º F.
  • Remove the dough from the refrigerator and remove from the plastic wrap.
  • Place the dough on a piece of wax paper.
  • Cover with another piece of wax paper and roll to ¼ inch thickness with a rolling pin.
  • Use your favorite cookie cutter to cut out shapes.
  • Spray coconut oil on a baking sheet.
  • Place each cookie shape on the baking sheet.
  • Bake the cookie shapes for 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove from the baking sheet and place on a cooling rack.

Frosting

  • Add the powdered sugar, butter, and water to the standing mixer.
  • Mix on low until the powdered sugar is incorporated.
  • Divide the frosting into several bowls (depending on how many colors you make).
  • Add a few drops of food color to each bowl. Mix well.
  • Take a pastry bag and a tip and add one color of frosting to the bag. Pipe it onto a cookie then add another cookie on top to make the cookie sandwich.

Notes

  1. I have tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure GF and Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend in this recipe. That doesn't mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
  2. If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain Xanthan Gum or Guar Gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  3. To make this recipe dairy-free, substitute the butter for vegan butter.
  4. These cookies will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.
