Ingredients

  • 1 Cup butter, such as Country Crock® Spreadable Sticks or Tub
  • 3/4 Cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 Cups firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 Teaspoons gluten-free vanilla extract
  • 3 Cups gluten-free flour
  • 1/4 Cup coconut flour
  • 1 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 Teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon baking soda
  • Your choice of gluten-free mix-ins

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Mix Country Crock® Spread, granulated sugar, light brown sugar, egg, egg yolk, and vanilla in large bowl until well mixed. Stir in gluten-free and coconut flours, baking powder, salt, and baking soda until blended. (Dough will be soft and creamy.) Add your favorite gluten-free mix-ins until every spoonful of dough has some of the delicious mix-ins or choose from the variations above.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls on ungreased baking sheets 3-inches apart.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes until edges are lightly golden. Cool 1 minute on wire rack; remove from sheets and cool completely.

Cookie Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Cookie Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.

Cookie Wine Pairing

Milk is more traditional with cookies than wine in the U.S., but a few cookies and a glass of sweet wine make a simple, enjoyable dessert. Sweet chenin blanc, muscat, or amontillado sherry with nut-based cookies; sauternes or sweet German wines with sugar cookies; cabernet sauvignon or cabernet franc with chocolate desserts; Italian vin santo with biscotti.
