1. 2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour2. 1 tablespoon baking powder3. 1/2 teaspoon salt4. 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened5. 1 cup milk (dairy or plant-based)6. 1/2 cup granulated sugar7. 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon8. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the gluten-free all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the softened butter and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to incorporate it into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Pour in the milk and vanilla extract, and stir the mixture until a soft dough forms. Be careful not to overmix; it's okay if there are some lumps.
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough into a rectangle approximately 12x8 inches in size.
In a small bowl, mix together the granulated sugar and ground cinnamon. Sprinkle this cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly over the rolled-out dough.
Starting from one of the longer sides, carefully roll the dough into a log. Using a sharp knife, cut the log into 1-inch slices. Place the slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes or until the breadsticks are golden brown. Allow them to cool slightly before serving.
