    1. Gluten free flour behaves so differently than all-purpose. I think you could probably use 1:1 flour, but since I haven’ tested it I can’t say for sure.

  1. Do these freeze well? After baking but before frosting?

    They are delicious and allowed my son to participate at his school Valentine’s day party! Thank you!!

  2. easy! easy to cut and move to the baking sheet. didn’t spread or lose shape during baking. taste was fantastic. we have looked for a cut out cookie recipe like this for a LONG TIME with no luck. thank you!!

  3. I made a double batch of these with dairy-based ingredients (If I make them dairy free I can, and will, eat too many of them!). They came together quickly, and rolled out well. They baked perfectly and kept their shape. The kids were in heaven with the smell. Definite winner.

  4. These were great! The dough was pretty easy to work with but got a little delicate when transferring cut outs to the tray. The cookies held their shape well and did not spread too much. I loved the flavor with the almond and vanilla extracts. The cookies were crispy and delicious.

    1. I haven’t tried it with a different liquid, but since the amount is so small, I think water will work fine. If you are using vegan butter, there may be enough moisture to omit the liquid for the cookie dough, but that depend on the brand you’re using.
