This gluten-free cookie recipe is very simple to make! You will need the following ingredients:

Kitchen Items Needed:

Gluten Free Lemon Drop Cookies

These drop cookies are quick & easy to make and have a light lemony flavor. I have made them Gluten Free by switching out the regular flour for Coconut Flour & All Purpose Gluten Free Flour. Bob’s Red Mill is a great brand to use for both types of flour here!

Also, I used 2 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil in place of 2 Tablespoons of Butter. I love coconut oil and try to sneak it into as many recipes as I can because of the wonderful health benefits it provides. It is important to use a high quality extra virgin coconut oil, such as Nature’s Way, when using it in place of butter for baking to achieve similar results.

How do I Make Gluten-Free Lemon Drop Cookies?

This easy drop cookie recipe comes together quickly with just a few simple steps.

Step 1: Make the Cookie Dough

Start off by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, beat together the sugar, butter, coconut oil, butter and lemon rind with an electric mixer. Then, add honey, lemon extract and egg to butter/sugar mixture and beat until well-combined.

In a separate medium-sized bowl, whisk together the coconut flour and gluten free all purpose flour with the baking powder and salt. Add flour mixture alternating with yogurt to butter/sugar mixture and mix until well combined.
