Christmas Cookie Time

Christmas Cookie Time

Now that we have Thanksgiving behind us,
All I can think about is,
coming up with new gluten free
Christmas cookie recipes.

As you can see I have already started.
My newest recipe is a big soft ginger cookie.

I have packaged them up in batches of 6,
all my guest will be getting
cookie favors at the table this year.
I love... when they bite into them,
and can't believe they're gluten free..

These cookie bags are a great idea to make sure your cookies
don't get cross contaminated.
during your gluten free holiday.

Don't forget to leave some big soft gluten free ginger cookies out for santa,
he'll be getting plenty of gluten at the other houses,
