GF Christmas Cookies Recipe RoundUp

Gluten Free Christmas Cookie RecipesDo I really dare to talk about Christmas cookies on December 5th? Well, yes as I’m starting to get panicked about all that needs to get ready for the holidays! Christmas cookies are almost integral to Christmas in my opinion.  My mother used to participate in a cookie exchange when we were children.  I still remember the flimsy paper plates covered in saran wrap that would show up after school near to Christmas. There was a always a Neapolitan tri-colored cake, little almond drop cookies with candied cherries on top and my favorite chocolate florentines. One woman’s specialty was chocolate chip cookies. I’m not sure what her secret was but they were the most amazing chocolate chip cookies-not too flattened, not to chewy, and not too brittle. She certainly had a talent.  As I grew older I learned about other families’ traditional Christmas cookies. Some swore by a snickerdoodle.  However, one of the most delicious cookies I didn’t learn about until college. That amazingly delicious cookie was a powdered sugar chocolate chip cookie. I’ve now heard of them called snowball cookies. I’ll be sure to work on a version of chocolate chip snowball cookies for this holiday season. I can’t guarantee that they’ll stick around our kitchen long enough to be photographed.

Note that you can really make any of your favorite cookies gluten free by substituting Cup4Cup for the wheat flour.  That’s what I do lots of times. But here’s a Gluten Free Christmas Cookie Recipe Roundup for some more ideas to fill Santa’s plate.
