>Unbelievable Cookies

Posted on December 22, 2009 by Glutenfreeda

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!

Great holiday cookies for kids:

Gingerbread Cookies
Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies
Chocolate Chip Cookies
Chocolate Dipped Macaroons

Elegant Cookies:

Cornets with Fresh Fruit
Lace Cookies
Chocolate Cigarettes
Stained Glass Cookies
Almond Pine Nut Cookies

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.

Happy Holidays!
