Some of the Christmas Cookies Never Before Seen on All Gluten-Free Desserts

“Christmas” cookies are often a subjective thing. Sure, cut-out cookies that are angels and Christmas trees qualify as Christmas cookies, but what about Aunt Mary’s beloved Oatmeal Cookies and your neighbor’s No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookies that you’ve always loved? If they mean Christmas to you, they’re Christmas cookies!

That’s the thinking behind today’s roundup of 30 cookies recipes never before seen here on All Gluten-Free Desserts. You’ll find “classic” Christmas cookies plus other cookie recipes that one would enjoy at Christmas time or any time of year.

  1. Oh Shirley, every time I think you’ve out-done yourself, you do it again! Fabulous round up, and honoured to be a part of it. Thank you!

    • Ha! I don’t know about that, but I very much appreciate your kind words and am so happy to include your recipes, Jeanine! :-) I’ve made a vow to keep my next roundup very, very small. The last one I just finished about killed me. ;-)

      Shirley

  2. Thanks Shirley – I just LOVE your roundups, and this one is beautiful and lovely! I just may have to make a couple (or more) of these recipes – and what better excuse for baking than Christmas!

  3. Great collection, Shirley! These ALL look terrific!

  4. O. My. Goodness. What a beautiful roundup! I have my eye on the ginger molasses cookies from Allergy Free Alaska!

    ..thanks for including my no bake cookies :)

    xo,
    Cassidy

    • Hi Cassidy–Megan did create some beautiful treats in that recipe! Who doesn’t love big ginger molasses cookies? ;-) Your no-bake cookies are so pretty and no doubt delish! :-)

      xo,
      Shirley

  5. There are some gorgeous cookies featured here, Shirley! Thank you for including my Big & Soft Paleo Ginger Molasses Cookies!
    xoxo,
    M

    • Megan–You are so smart with that recipe … I mean really, who can resist cookies that are “big & soft”? and ginger molasses at that? I can’t!

      xoxo,
      Shirley

  6. What a wonderful collection of cookies Shirley. I love seeing what cookies are on other people’s holiday table. Thank you for including my gingerbread cookies. :)
    Happy Holidays to you!
    -Terris

    • Terris–I agree … it’s really fun to see what everyone else is making! And your gingerbread cookies are stunning. I’m weak for beautiful snowflakes. ;-)

      Happy Holidays to you, too! Thanks. :-)
      Shirley
