Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Mix your margarine and sugars together until you get a smooth mixture. Add in the egg replacer (already prepared) and the vinegar and vanilla extract.
  3. In another bowl, sift sorghum flour, potato starch, tapioca flour, xanthan gum and baking powder. Mix the sugar and margarine mixture in with the flours until you get dough. The dough may be too sticky to handle. If that is the case, add a little more sorghum flour to it. It's okay if it is a little sticky, as long as you can work it easily with your hands. Form the dough into a patty and put in the refrigerator or freezer to chill.
  4. Line your counter or table with parchment paper. Lightly flour your rolling pin. Roll dough until it is about 1/3" to I/2" thick. Use cookie cutters to cut into desired shapes. Lift the cookies gently using a spatula and put on an ungreased baking sheet. If at any point the dough gets soft and is sticking to your pin, you can put it back in the fridge to chill until you can use it again.
  5. Bake cookies for approximately 7-8 minutes. Let them cool completely before you try to remove them. You can eat the cookies plain or cover them with icing.
  6. For icing: Mix confectioner's sugar and milk until you have a paste. Stir in corn syrup until it is shiny. Add food coloring if you wish. Put the icing in piping bags to decorate the cookies.
