5 Gluten Free Cookie Recipes to Make Your Season Bright

Making cookies is a great stress reducer during this hectic time of year.

Eating them works even better!

Here are five gluten-free cookie recipes to get you through the Holiday Season.

Decorated Gluten-Free Sugar Cookie Recipe

Decorated gluten-free sugar cookies are fast and easy to make using a food processor to mix the cookie dough. 

Everyone loves decorating cookies. And eating them too!

Make these traditional holiday cookies with the kids!

Gluten-Free Chocolate Bar Cookies (An Experiment)

This makes more of a dense, soft cookie that doesn’t spread when baked.

“I’m the kind of person who usually wants something sweet after dinner, and chocolate should be involved somehow. When I don’t have a healthier alternative, I eat junk. I decided to stop buying junk earlier this year, so I make this recipe all the time.”

Gluten Free Recipe: Old Fashioned Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn’t dream of a really good old-fashioned chocolate chip cookie?

The kind you used to make when you were a kid?

This is a very easy and quite tasty recipe from Chef Sunshine Best of Your Safe Kitchen in Chicago, IL. 

Try these cookies today. You’ll be happy you did!

Gluten-Free Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

These delicious, easy-to-make (gluten-free, cane sugar-free, dairy-free) cookies were a sensation when they were first introduced as — peanut butter kisses.

They remain a standby today. Instead of topping the dough with a milk chocolate candy, this recipe incorporates unsweetened chocolate into the dough.

It also uses fructose for those of us who do not eat sugar. 

Gluten Free Pizzelle Recipe

Pizzelles are by far one of my favorite “cookies” in the world. 

I can remember being little and my Grandma Lu would always make these for the holidays.

As soon as I received this pizzelles maker, I started searching for recipes right away and found a few.  The first one I tried is AMAZING, tastes just like my gram’s recipe and I don’t plan on trying another one.

Betsy’s Bakery to Host Gluten-Free Candlelight Dinner On Valentine’s Day

Let me preface this post by noting that Valentine’s day is not a holiday I, personally, subscribe to. The cards, the flowers, the mush, the grand gestures, and all the things that some expect of this day…none of that is really my jam. So, last year, after I requested no frills or fancy dinners or grand gestures, my boyfriend, Mike, presented me with a terracotta pot with a yellow lily and some dirt in it. (Read: don’t scoff yet…) Upon further inspection, it turned out that the “dirt” was finely crushed chocolate cookie bits covering a blue Solo cup filled with his gluten-free version of cookies and cream ice cream (my absolute favorite) that he had mixed and made himself. This gesture seemed small to some in my life, but to me, the girl who hadn’t had cookies and cream ice cream in almost two years, it was the grandest gesture of them all.

That one grand gesture, when someone went out of his way to make sure that I could eat what I loved and not get sick is why the the candlelight dinner at Betsy’s Bakery in Camp Hill, PA is so important. This little bakery is hosting a reservation-only, gluten-free candlelight dinner on Valentine’s day this year. Taking your gluten-free sweetie to this dinner may be the gesture they’ve been looking for if you haven’t quite mastered the gluten-free vibe in the kitchen, or if you’re tired of going out to eat at the same “safe” restaurants all the time.
