    Recipe Introduction

    Note from Tracey: My amaranth sugar cookie recipe is very sturdy and can be made chocolate. If all you need is circles, chill it in a log and slice instead of rolling it out.

    List of Ingredients

    1/2 c sugar (or Xylitol)
    1/2 c Spectrum palm shortening
    1 T flax + 3 T water, heated then cooled (this is equal to 1 egg)
    2 tsp vanilla
    2 T fruit juice (apple, pear)

    Sift in:
    3/4 c amaranth flour
    1/4 c Montina flour
    3/4 c arrowroot powder
    2 tsp xanthan gum
    1 tsp baking powder


    Add wet and dry ingredients and mix until dough looks like sugar cookie dough. Add more juice if needed.

    Roll into log and chill 1/2 hour. Slice and bake at 400* for about 6 minutes.

    Can also be rolled and cut with shapes. Chocolate was also really good- I added 1/4 cup cocoa powder, 2 drops of stevia and a bit more juice.
