Rice Flour Sugar Cookies with Simple Icing

Prep time 15 mins
Cook time 1 hr

1 serving

This recipe is really quick and easy and super delicious. I cut them in star shapes for Christmas. It's perfect for people who avoid wheat and gluten. The recipe calls for rice flour but maybe you can try using other types, e.g. almond flour. You can also make the icing in different colours and have fun decorating colourful shapes.


  • 3 cups rice flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
