No it isn't an ice block recipe, just had to include this playdough photo as Lochy demonstrates how super yummy it is. Just to get you in that cooking mood!
All I do is roll it out and the kids have enjoyed cutting out thier own bikkies, so here it is:
GLUTEN FREE SUGAR COOKIES2 ½ cups gluten free self-rising flour ( I use the brand Ogran self-rising flour)
2 ½ tsps Xanthan Gum
1 cup white sugar
1 cup butter
2 tsps pure vanilla
½ tsp nutmeg
Note: Chill dough in the fridge for at least 1 hour. This is essential for gluten-free dough.
Mix all the dry ingredients together and set that bowl aside.Cream together the butter and sugar, preferably with a standing mixer. Then, add the egg and vanilla. Beat these as long as you can. The more airy and whipped they are, the better the cookies will taste. -that's so true
Add the dry ingredients, along with the nutmeg.Chill in the fridge for an hour. - its too sticky otherwise and will not roll out.
When the dough is properly chilled, roll it out to ½ inch thickness and cut with your favourite cookie cutters. - do the usual flouring of the rolling pin so it doesn't stick, roll out on a floured surface and you might want to flour your cookie cutters as well.Bake on a baking sheet at 180 degrees for 12 – 15 min depending on your oven.
