The holiday season is typically filled with special cookies and treats for all to enjoy. Just because you are on a gluten-free diet does not mean you have to forgo all the delicious treats the holidays have to offer. This holiday season we’d like to share some gluten-free cookies that are very gourmet, delicate and absolutely delicious that your whole family will enjoy. In fact, I would be surprised if they even could tell if these cookies were gluten-free. Surprise your family with some delicious cookies this Christmas — even Santa will be thankful!

General Tips for Gluten-Free Cookies:
Gluten-free cookies can sometimes be a challenge. The gluten-free flours sometimes produce a very dry, crumbly cookie that is less than desirable. Here are some basic tips to consider for your next batch of gluten-free cookies:
- Generally speaking avoid cookie recipes with more than 2 cups of flour.
- Typically the more fat (butter, shortening or oil) in the recipe the better your chances of success.
- Choose a good gluten-free flour mix. Our best success has been with using The Gluten Free Pantry’s Country French Bread mix flour as a direct substitution for gf flour.
