Grain-Free Cut-Out Cookies -- Real Food RN

Growing up, Christmas was one of my favorite memories….especially the Christmas cookies! We made so many different kinds. I always loved the cut-outs the best because after cutting them out and baking them you also got to frost and decorate them!

My kids share the same cookie favorite. So, because we are gluten-free, I needed to come up with a gluten-free cut-out recipe. Well, I decided to go a step further and make it a grain-free cut-out cookies recipe! They turned out even better than I could have imagined!

  1. I’m not on facebook, is there any where else I can find the Otto’s cassava flour? Or can I sub something else?
    These DO look mighty good!

  2. Is there a non-facebook way to contact this company? I am writing an article about cassava products and their uses so I would love to include this.

    1. They have a site underway right now. Try a google search in the near future and hopefully it will be up. You could always follow them on facebook for updates too. 🙂

    1. Leah, you sure can. Just make sure to seal the saran tight so it doesn’t dry out. Also, let it warm up a bit once out of the fridge, it will make rolling it out much easier.

  3. Baking powder typically has cornstarch in it. The one you linked to (Bob’s RedMill) does. I suggest using a cream tartar and baking soda substitute otherwise they won’t be “grain-free”. There is one brand that makes baking powder with potato starch if you can tolerate nightshades- which I can’t at the moment. Just a little fyi :-).
