gluten-free easter m and m cookies


  • 2 3/4 cup gluten-free flour mix
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons guar or xanthin gum ONLY if your flour mix doesn’t already include it
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/22 cups pastel M&Ms.


  1. Preheat oven to 375º
  2. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder
  3. In a second, larger bowl, cream butter and sugar together until smooth
  4. Beat in egg and vanilla
  5. Gradually blend in dry ingredients
  6. Stir in M&Ms
  7. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto uncreased cookie sheets
  8. Bake 8-10 minutes until they start to look a little dry on the edges. I like to take them out while the centers are still very soft.
  9. Let rest on the cookie sheet a few minutes before removing to a plate or wire rack to cool.
  10. Enjoy!
