Vickys Red Hot Valentines Crinkle Cookies, GF DF EF SF NF

Crinkle cookies are the easiest cookies to make and are a favourite for many. I’ve made mine with Red Hots for Valentines Day!…more


20 servings

  1. 112 g gold foil wrapped Stork margarine block

  2. 200 g granulated sugar

  3. 2 tbsp light coconut milk or milk of choice

  4. 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  5. 200 g gluten-free / plain flour

  6. 1/8 tsp xanthan gum if using gluten-free flour

  7. 1 tbsp cornstarch / cornflour

  8. 1/4 tsp baking powder

  9. 1/8 tsp baking soda / bicarb

  10. 3 tbsp / 50g Red Hot Candies / cinnamon flavoured hard sweets

  11. around 40g icing sugar / powdered sugar to roll the cookies in


  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4 / 180C / 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper

  2. Cream together the Stork and sugar then beat in the milk and vanilla

  3. Sift in the flour, cornflour, baking powder and bicarbinate of soda and mix in

  4. Put the Red Hots in a freezer bag, seal and smash with a rolling pin

  5. Mix into the dough until evenly incorporated

  6. Take heaping teaspoons of dough and roll into balls. Roll each ball in icing sugar then place on the baking tray. You should get between 20 – 24 cookies

  7. Bake for 12 minutes or until the cookies flatten out and stop looking shiny

  8. Let sit on the tray for a few minutes to set. During this time the cookies will ‘crinkle’ into shape. Ease them off the tray onto a wire rack with a fish slice to cool completely

  9. You can make these without adding the sweets. Just add a little extra flavouring extract to taste

  10. For a more pronounced coating of icing sugar, roll the cookie balls in granulated sugar first, then in the icing sugar. The granulated sugar will stop the icing sugar from soaking into the dough. Also if you like your cookies thicker, chill the dough for 30 minutes in the fridge before baking and they’ll retain a rounder, fatter shape
