- 2 cups + 2 tbsp CocoGoodsCo. Coconut Flour
- 1/2 tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- ½ cup room temperature CocoGoodsCo. Refined Coconut Oil
- ¾ cup + 2 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup of water
- ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
- 2 cups of powdered sugar
- 3 tbsp CocoGoodsCo. Coconut Milk
- 4 tsp white corn syrup
- To make Sugar Cookies, begin in a medium-sized bowl combine the coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, cream together the coconut oil and the sugar. Beat for 1-2 minutes until the mixture is nice and light. Add the water and vanilla and beat until the mixture is well combined.
- Gradually add the coconut flour mixture to the creamed sugar mixture, beating to combine.
- Wrap the dough tightly in plastic wrap and freeze for 1 hour.
- Before rolling, let the dough sit at room temperature for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
- Preheat oven to 325F.
- Roll the dough directly onto parchment paper. The dough should be ¼" thick. Use cookie cutters to cut out the dough, use a flat spatula to gently remove the excess dough.
- Keep re-rolling and cutting out the dough until it's all used up.
- Transfer the cookies to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Leave 1" space between cookies.
- Place the unbaked cookies into the freezer to chill for 10 minutes before baking.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the cookies are lightly browned around the edges and barely firm in the center. You’ll want to let them rest on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack.
- Let them cool completely before decorating.
- To form the icing begin in a small bowl; beat together the powdered sugar and coconut milk until smooth.
- Add corn syrup and continue beating until it’s thick and glossy
- Separate into bowls and add food coloring if you want!
- Decorate cookies!
- To keep leftover Icing: Immediately transfer the icing into a piping bag or airtight container to prevent icing from drying out.
