Our Chestnut Flour Sugar Cookies are easy to make, exceptionally delicious and perfect for holiday parties. They’re exactly what you’d expect from a classic sugar cookie, but with a toasty, nutty finish.
If you’ve never baked with Chestnut Flour before, now’s the perfect time of year to start. This naturally gluten-free flour is lightly sweet and will yield a denser cookie than a traditional sugar cookie recipe. Chestnut Flour works best when mixed with other flours, so we combined it with all-purpose flour to achieve a soft, yet sturdy-enough to frost consistency.
These nutty morsels hold their shape as they bake (no puffing or spreading!), so feel free to use a variety of quirky and classic cookie cutters to amp up the fun.
Bring them to life with eye-catching frosting and sanding sugar. They’re equally delicious left plain, so no matter how you decide to enjoy them, be prepared to get your hand caught in the cookie jar!
