For Cookie Dough

  • 2 1/4 cups gluten-free flour
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup melted coconut oil cooled slightly
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs

For Topping

  • 3 tbs sugar
  • 3 tsp cinnamon


  • In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to cream the coconut oil, sugar, and eggs. Add the dry ingredients 1/3 at a time, and mix to incorporate well.
  • In a very small bowl, stir together the sugar and cinnamon for the topping. Shape the dough into one-inch balls, flatten slightly, then dip each ball into the cinnamon sugar to coat evenly. Place each cookie on a parchment-lined baking sheet, making 3 rows of 3 cookies each (9 cookies per sheet).
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Refrigerate the unbaked cookies while the oven is preheating to keep them from getting too flat in the oven.
  • Bake for about 12 minutes, until the cookies are set and beginning to crack. Cool on a wire rack.
