happy halloween!

31 Oct

some delicious cookies for halloween. you can bet that i will be making some turkey shaped cookies for thanksgiving and probably some christmas ones too.

chocolate roll out cookies

1 cup gf flour,  or your favorite mix
1/2 cup tapioca starch
2 tbs cocoa powder, natural
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp xantham/guar gum
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar, any kind you want i use palm
1/4 cup agave syrup
1/2 cup palm shortening
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla

350º
beat together sugar, agave and shortening, when it looks fluffy add the egg and vanilla, beat. add flour, starch, and rest of ingredients, mix well then refrigerate. i usually refrigerate for 3 hrs. i bet 1 hr. would be suffice. remove from fridge and then get out all the things you’ll need for rolling your dough. roll dough to approximately 1/4″ using flour or tapioca starch as needed for sticking. bake for 8-10 mins. on parchment lined cookie sheet, cool on sheet for a few minutes then transfer to rack.

for the icing i didn’t measure anything i used a basic no egg royal icing (i did not use corn syrup) and just added this and that as i went to get the consistency i wanted. so go ahead and use your favorite cookie icing to decorate or don’t even bother icing them at all, they are delicious plain too. usually we don’t ice, we iced these to enhance the halloween experience.

    Those cookies look great! A nice change from sugar cookies or gingerbread men. Nice!
