Gluten-Free Shortbread Cut-Out Cookies

This gluten-free shortbread dough can be rolled out immediately after mixing! It takes color dyes very well, a plus for Christmas and Halloween cookies. Store cookies in an airtight container for up to a week. They freeze well.

Gluten-Free Festive Cookies

I’m a cooking instructor and own a gluten-free bakery in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, so my family expects to see Christmas cookies coming out of the oven almost as soon as they finish up the Thanksgiving leftovers. Although I have a large collection of holiday recipes, I can pare my all-time favorites to a short list of three classics—shortbread, chocolate and “peanut butter” cookies. And they are by far the most requested. These allergy-friendly cookies are as easy and fun to prepare as any conventional type. And they taste just like the real thing. You can bring them to parties, wrap them as gifts or plate them for company and nobody will suspect they’re allergy friendly. In fact, I’m betting your guests will ask for the recipe.

Gluten-Free Baking: Ready, Set, Bake!

Making gluten-free, dairy-free cookies from scratch is easier than you think. When selecting a commercial gluten-free flour mix, choose one that’s finely ground. A mix of organic brown rice flour, white rice flour, tapioca starch/flour and potato starch works well. Blends are available at most health food stores or gluten-free bakeries.

Gluten-Free Sunflower Butter Cookies

These moist cookies pack a lot of flavor. Prepared with sunflower seed butter, a product made from ground sunflower seeds, they make tasty holiday gifts that pack easily and travel well.

"I'm so grateful for Gluten Free and More and am brought to tears with every new issue. It's a battle dealing with my food sensitivities but your magazine helps me on my journey."

"I am amazed how good your lemon pound cake recipe is. I love to bake but stopped doing it as much because after I went gluten-free, I couldn’t find a recipe that didn’t taste like something was missing. Thank you! Looking forward to other gluten-free cake recipes."

"Oh, how I wish my doctors had told me about the psycho-social impact of celiac disease—social isolation, anxiety, depression. People stop inviting you to potlucks, lunch with friends, dinner celebrations and neighborhood gatherings because they don’t know how to deal with your dietary issues. Gluten Free and More helps me deal with these issues. But it really takes internal fortitude to push through the isolation and step out the front door."
