Chestnut Flour Sugar Cookies

This is a Nuts.com original recipe.

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!

    Er, actually, on a more serious note, a much better question would be, where are the rest of the instructions? They stop at rolling the dough, and neglect to mention how long the cookies should be in the oven. Thanks.

    Can a gluten free flour be substituted for the all purpose flour? What about another nut flour?

      Hi Bonnie! We’ve never tried the recipe with a gluten-free or nut flour, but if you do, we’d love to hear how it goes. 🙂
