1 c butter flavored shortening (or you can use palm shortening)
1 c granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 3/4 c Better Batter Gluten Free Flour
2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt (up to 1/8 tsp)
pinch of cinnamon (up to 1/8 tsp)
pinch of cloves (up to 1/8 tsp)
Sprinkles or colored sugar, as desired.
In a large bowl,cream butter flavored shortening or palm shortening and sugar. Add the egg vanilla and mix well, until smooth and creamy.
In a separate, small bowl, combine Better Batter flour, baking powder, salt, and spices.
Add the flour mix to the egg/shortening mix and stir until well combined. Cover and put in fridge for AT LEAST an hour – overnight is best.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Remove dough from the fridge. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough until it is about ~1/8″ thick, cut out into shapes as desired, and then bake on parchment lined cookie sheets for 6-8 minutes. *If you wish to bake colored sprinkles or colored sugar onto the surface, brush the cookies with a bit of water and sprinkle them before baking.*
Allow to cool for at least 1 minute before removing to a rack to cool completely. *If you wish to decorate cookies after baking, you will probably want to use a little bit of icing or frosting to attach desired sprinkles or sugar.*
Store in an airtight container for up to a week.
