Gluten-Free Snickerdoodle Cookies

My doctor told me that if I wanted to stop the constant stomach-ache and bloating, I would need to stop eating dairy and gluten.  I have been working on this for the last few months, and I have seen a difference.

Shopping for gluten-free/dairy free products is expensive and not always very tasty.  I decided to experiment with some of my time-tested recipes and see if I could make them gluten-free.  Here is one of my first and tasty tries. 

I love Snickerdoodle cookies. In the past, I used the recipe I found on the Betty Crocker website.  This gluten-free recipe for Snickerdoodles is a version of that Betty Crocker recipe. They are tasty, and they would make a great treat to bring to parties.  No one needs to know that these cookies are gluten-free. They are so good!


1 1/2 cups sugar

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup shortening

2 large eggs

2 3/4 cups Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour

2 teaspoons cream of tartar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon




1. Heat oven to 400ºF.

2. Mix 1 1/2 cups sugar, the butter, shortening and eggs in large bowl. Stir in Gluten Free Flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.

3. Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Mix 1/4 cup sugar and the cinnamon. Roll balls in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.


Makes 3 dozen cookies

    I had no idea about Gluten. Good to know.

  3. I love that name. You could make up a story about them using the name, it’s fantastic 🙂

  4. When I found out I was allergic to wheat, my friend told me about the book ‘Wheat Belly’…I highly recommend it for anyone! Thanks for the recipe! 🙂

    • I have never heard of that particular book. I will definately go and check it out at the library. It may give me some good pointers. Thank you so much for suggesting it. Enjoy the evening. 🙂

    Those look delicious!! Maybe I’ll try making them myself sometime :)! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  6. Wonderful – my son Elijah’s girlfriend is gluten intolerant and like you she finds it expensive and so hard to find suitable products. When they visit I try my regular recipes but with gluten-free flour and some turn out really well, others not so good! Our favourite is pancakes and we always have them for breakfast when they visit. Next time I’ll be making your cookies 🙂
