Anyone Have A Tried And True Christmas Cookie Recipe

Recommended Posts

We have several Christmas functions to attend where we are required to bring baking, and a couple involve actually selling the baking goods. Of course, what we bring has to be gluten-free as I won't use regular flour in my house.

Further, my son in kindergarten must bring in a recipe to share with the class -- they are making a Christmas Cookie Recipe book.

So, I am searching for a simple, tried and true, that kids will love, Christmas cookie recipe. I'm hoping that someone has one to share.

We are still new to Celiac (March 2007) so haven't had to worry about Christmas baking before.

Many thanks

I have a passed down family recipe that I have used for years for cut out gingerbread cookies. They are soft and cakey, and yummy frosted. Not has strong a flavor as gingersnaps usually are.

I am currently away from home so don't have the gluten-free version we have worked out. I haven't tried making a rolled out cookie yet, but we make drop cookies with these (drop from a spoon), add raisens, and then you can frost them and decorate.

My version is GFCFSF, but you can add the sour milk or regular shortening if you tolerate that. I can't tell the difference in taste from the original version, and I am picky.

PM me if you want this recipe as I will be away from home until the 8th, and will likely forget to post otherwise.

Don't overlook things that are already gluten-free like many homemade candies, such as peanut brittle, fudge etc.

This recipe for sugar cookies is fan-freakin-tastic. We make it all the time, and gluten eaters cannot tell the difference.

Here's a thread I started last Christmas. It has a bunch of cookie recipes and they are all delicious.

All purpose flour = 3 parts white rice + 2 parts potato starch + 1 part tapioca starch

Add 1 teaspoon xantham gum per cup of flour
