Sharing holiday cookie recipes with my mother has been a tradition since I was a kid. When my son was diagnosed with celiac our very first Christmas felt awkward without all our favorite holiday cookies. (My mother amassed over 15 holiday cookie recipes over the years, most of which are common traditional Christmas cookie favorites). Each year I attempted to recreate our favorite Christmas cookie recipes to suite our family’s new gluten free cookie needs. Eventually I developed a handful. Then when my aunt was diagnosed in 2009 I had someone to bake with. Now our annual baking day is an event I look forward to every year. I want to share our family’s favorite gluten free holiday cookie recipes for everyone, especially if you are new to gluten free baking.
Bake One of Our 9 Holiday Cookie Recipes
The other recipes are new ones that I created after baking gluten free holiday cookies for quite some time. Some of these recipes have other allergens (we use butter) but you can make substitutions if you’d like. We’ve done a dairy free Nut Cup recipe but we still prefer those cookies with butter. Some are free from most of the top 8 allergens, too. I hope you like them!
Gluten free Holiday Cookie Recipes from Our Family
Our nine favorite holiday cookie recipes are safe for corn allergy folks (see our helpful tips) and many are free from dairy too. Over the years my aunt and I have worked hard to try to recreate these familiar family favorite holiday cookie recipes. We spend a marathon day together in the kitchen baking, snacking, chatting, baking, tasting, chatting, snacking, and baking some more. Sound like your house? You can’t beat having good company in the kitchen around the holidays. These cookie recipes are also good for the Feingold diet.
Here’s our knockoff list of best allergy-friendly look and taste alike holiday cookie recipes. Feel free to copy and print your recipes to share with your family. Please do not publish them without contacting me first:
