100g/3½oz unsalted lactose free butter, softened at room temperature
100g/3½oz caster sugar
1 free-range egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
275g/10oz gluten free plain flour
400g/14oz icing sugar
Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
Cream the lactose free butter and sugar together in a bowl until pale, light and fluffy.
Beat in the egg and vanilla extract, a little at a time, until well combined.
Stir in the gluten free flour until the mixture comes together as a dough.
Roll the dough out on a lightly floured work surface to a thickness of 1cm/½in.
Using cookies cutters or a glass, cut cookies out of the dough and carefully place onto the baking tray.
To make into Christmas tree decorations, carefully make a hole in the top of the cookies using a straw.
Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes, or until pale golden-brown.
Set aside to harden for 5 minutes, then cool on a wire rack.
To decorate, sift the icing sugar onto the cookies.
