In my grandma’s kitchen, sugar cookies are tender in the middle, melting in your mouth after a satisfying crunch around the edges. These gluten-free sugar cookies deliver all of that and just a hint of citrusy warmth for those cold winter days.
Gluten-free dough can be fragile to transport before it is cooked, so I recommend cutting the cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment and then peeling away the extra dough. This leaves the cookies ready to bake on the sheet — just make sure to give them about an inch of space so they don’t spread into one another.
