Gluten Free WOW

Gluten Free Lemon Crinkle Cookies – Thermomix

Making gluten free anything is a rarity to me now. We made many things when we first got our Thermomix but in the recent times, no. At demo’s yes, for home food/treats no.

Having family members come over that are gluten free I decided to branch out and give these cookies a go from The Loopy Whisk. OMG they are amazing. Everyone wanted them.

I am NOT the writer of this recipe – no will I ever claim anyone elses amazing recipes.

  • 10 Seconds | Speed 5
    Scrape down the side
    5 Seconds | Speed 5
  • Tip: At this stage, the cookie dough will really be more like a batter – very soft and sticky, bordering on runny. That's how it should be. Don't add more flour!
  • Put mixture into a bowl and cover and refrigerate for at LEAST 2 hours! I left mine overnight

Make the Cookies

  • Adjust the oven rack to the middle position, pre-heat the oven to 180ºC and line 2 large baking sheets with baking paper.
    100 g granulated sugar, 90 g icing sugar
  • Tip: You will bake the cookies in several batches, so you can line 2 baking sheets if you have them on hand. Otherwise, just re-use the same baking sheet, but make sure to cool it completely before you place the next batch of unbaked cookies onto it.
  • Shape about 1 tablespoon (about 17g) portions of the chilled cookie dough into balls. You should get 30-32 cookies in total.

See Notes

  • Roll each ball first in granulated sugar and then in powdered/icing sugar until it's fully coated.
    Tip: Rolling the cookies in granulated sugar first results in the prettiest cookies, with a lovely white coating of powdered sugar that cracks to give a beautiful random pattern (I did NOT do this)

Baking - the cookies are super soft and sloppy - handle with care

  • Place the cookie dough balls on the lined baking sheets, at least 1 ½-2 inches (4-5cm) apart. The cookies will spread and expand slightly during baking.
    Place the baking sheet with the cookies that you won't be baking straight away in the fridge until needed.
  • Bake one baking sheet at a time at 350ºF (180ºC) for 8-10 minutes or until the cookies have risen and expanded into little rounded mounds with cracks in their sugar coating. The cookies are done when the cracks no longer look wet or shiny.
  • The cookies will be very soft and delicate immediately out of the oven. Allow them to cool on the baking sheet for at least 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.


These cookies are worth the work. Super soft mixture when rolling the cookies in the sugar.
I combined the granulated/icing sugar in a small bowl Placed one teaspoon of the dough into the bowl and roll the dough around to make a ball. CAREFULLY lift the dough and put on the baking paper
Tip 1: The cookie dough will be still slightly soft and sticky, even after it's been thoroughly chilled. I like to scoop portions of the cookie dough with a 1 tablespoon measuring spoon that I've dipped in a bit of powdered/icing sugar beforehand. This prevents the cookie dough from sticking to the spoon and makes the whole process easier and faster.
Tip 2: If the cookie dough sticks to your hands as you go to roll it into a ball, you can lightly dust your hands with a bit of powdered/icing sugar as well. This will prevent sticking.
