I thought it would be fun for everyone to post their favorite christmas cookie recipie.....My family does this HUGE cookie exchange and I can't ever really take part in it anymore. So I thought maybe this year I could gather up some great cookie recipies for y'all and then have my own options!!!

My sister made these and they were soooo good. I couldnt stop eating them! My friends who do not have Celiac couldnt stop eating them either! Keep them in the refrigerator - they are best when cold.

Oreo Dreams(not real oreo - the fake ones - i believe Mi-Del makes them)

1 pkg. (8oz) softened cream cheese

1 pkg gluten free oreo cookies

1 1/2 tbsp melted butter/margarine

8 squares semi-sweet milk choloate

8 squares white chocolate bark

1. Crumble cookies by blending in blender (do half of the cookies at one time). Blend until there are no chuncks left. Pour into large bowl.

2. Add cream cheese and melted butter to cookie crumbles. mix with spoon and hands until there is no white - it will be sticky - at first, you think there is no way there is enough liquid but if you knead and squeeze it by hand, it all works out.

3. Melt chocoate in separate bowls by color (using a double boiler is best - after the chocolate melts, turn off the burner but let the chocolate stay in the pan so it doesn't start to thicken.)

4. Scoop cookie mixture into spoon size amounts and shape into balls

5. Put balls into chocolate and use a spoon to roll the ball around in the sauce. Put on wax paper lined cookie sheet and place in freezer until hardened (about 10 minutes). Store in freezer or refrigerator between servings. Can be served frozen, cold or room temperature.

ENJOY!

Here's a fun kid one that's very colorful. I don't cook.

marshmallows

sprinkles - all kinds and colors (shaved coconut, shaved white chocolate, whatever)

Melting chocolate

colorful tooth picks- great fancy ones at Walmart etc.

Spear your marshmallows with the picks you've chosen

Melt your chocolate. Dip your marshmallow halfway into the melted BUT *not blazing hot* chocolate

Roll, dip, twirl, stick the chocolatey end of your marshmallow in your sprinkles, coconut, shaved white chocolate, etc... whatever you've chosen.

Arrange artfully on a festive platter.

Here's a recipe for Sugar Cookies. I neither eat nor bake Sugar Cookies, but they are a staple at my mother-in-law's house at Christmas. She made them, iced & decorated them (checking all labels, of course) and says you can't tell the difference between these and the usual ones she makes.

Gluten Free Sugar Cookies

⅓ cup margarine

⅓ cup shortening

1 cup rice flour

1 tsp xanthan gum

1 tsp unflavoured gelatin

1 egg

¾ cup sugar

1 tbsp milk

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla

¼ tsp salt (scant)

½ cup tapioca starch

½ cup potato starch

preheat oven to 375˚F

In a large bowl, beat margarine and shortening together until creamy.

Add rice flour, xanthan gum, gelatin, egg, sugar, milk, baking powder, vanilla and salt. Beat well.

Add tapioca starch and potato starch. Beat well.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for three hours.

Divide the dough in half and chill the unused portion of the dough until needed.

On a lightly rice-floured surface, roll half of the dough at a time, to ⅛” thick. Cut into desired shapes and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. (if the dough becomes sticky, return to the fridge to chill again.)

Bake at 375˚ F for 7-8 minutes (for 2 ½ inch cookies; less for smaller ones, more for larger ones) or until the edges are firm and bottoms are very lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.

I posted this earlier, but it seems to fit well here. I took these to our church's women's Christmas party last night (along with a tray of gingerbread) and put a little sign saying "Gluten-Free, Egg-Free" for the few of us who have allergies/celiac disease and they ALL disappeared. There weren't that many women there who needed to eat gluten-free, but apparently no one noticed that they were "different".

Russian Tea Cakes (Adapted from Betty Crocker's Cookbook)

1 C Butter or margarine, softened (but not melted)

1/2 C Powdered sugar

1 tsp. Vanilla

2 C + 2 Tbs. gluten-free flour

1 Tbs. xanthan gum

1 tsp. Ener-G egg replacer

1/4 tsp. salt ONLY if using unsalted butter

3/4 C chopped nuts (optional)

Powdered sugar

Heat oven to 400. Mix butter, 1/2 C powdered sugar and vanilla. Sift flour, xanthan gum, egg replacer and salt (if using) together 3 times. Stir flour mixture and nuts into butter mixture until dough holds together. Shape into 1" balls and place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until set, but not brown, 10-12 minutes. Cool slightly, roll in powdered sugar. DO THIS VERY CAREFULLY! Cool completely and then roll again in powdered sugar. Makes about 4 dozen.
