Gluten Free Sombrero Cookies

This recipe is gluten free, dairy free, peanut free and vegetarian. It can be made vegan if you use egg replacer instead of egg. The recipe makes 36 cookies. I saved some of the dough for later and made 12 sombrero cookies, hence the call for 12 strawberries below but if you want to make more remember that you'll need one strawberry per cookie.

  • 2 1/4 cups of GF Jules Cut Out Cookie Mix
  • 1 egg or egg replacer
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup palm oil shortening I used Spectrum organic, non-hydrogenated
  • 1/4 cup almond milk unflavored
  • 1 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 12 fresh strawberries smaller sized work better
  • 1 cup white icing or frosting I used my 2-ingredient frosting recipe
  • Rainbow sprinkles


  1. To make the cookies, follow the directions for GF Jules' cut out sugar cookie recipe . If you're strapped for time like busy families often are, I tested some out without refrigerating them and they came out well too.
  2. Let the cookies cool completely before decorating them.
  3. Select your strawberries, wash, and cut off the tops so that they can stand up with a flat bottom with the point at the top.
  4. Add your frosting to a ziploc bag and cut off the corner so that you can pipe the frosting out of the tiny hole.
  5. Put a circle of frosting in the middle of the cookie, add the strawberry on top so that it sticks.
  6. Pipe a thin layer of frosting around the outside of the strawberry. Do the same around the outside of the cookie.
  7. Sprinkle your rainbow sprinkles all over the top of the frosting until it's covered.
  8. Shake the cookie slightly to get the sprinkles off of the areas that don't have frosting on them.
  9. Repeat for all of the other cookies.
  10. Enjoy!
