Gluten-Free Snickerdoodles


I had never had a snickerdoodle cookie until recently. For so many people this cookie is a classic holiday cookie and one that they have had at Christmas time for many years. Not sure why it wasn’t for me, but it wasn’t.

Not that I have developed a gluten-free version I am sure I will be making this cookie at the holidays from now on.

These cookies would be perfect for a hostess gift, a cookie exchange or just to enjoy at holiday time.

This year I am giving cookie boxes for gifts. I bought wooden cutlery trays and painted them white. Great way to share them.

The cookie box above had a variety of gluten-free cookies in it. The recipes for chocolate dipped cookies and sugar cookies are on the blog already.

Happy baking! I would love to hear if you try any of my recipes for the holidays. Send me a comment.
