Tis the Season for Gluten Free Cookies

 

Everyday at work this past week, someone has brought in a platter of Christmas cookies, or brownies, or cake. And all week I’ve had to smile and say no thank you. In a lot of ways, I felt pretty lucky to have Celiac this past week. I didn’t have to worry about being tempted. I couldn’t eat any of it. But yesterday a platter of sugar cookies were brought in, and we sat them on the counter to share with customers. I didn’t want to eat one, but the smell of sweet sugar and sprinkles really got to me.

Tonight at work we’re having a party for our “staff” (volunteers) and inviting friends and family. So I decided to make gluten free sugar cookies to share!

Last Christmas I used the Cherrybrook Kitchen Gluten Free Sugar Cookie Mix and really liked it. So I decided to try it again…a year later! (Yeah, I don’t make cookies very often apparently!)

The dough does need work to roll out, but it’s worth it!

I used the Betty Crocker Cookie Icing and India Tree Sprinkles. So pretty…and tasty!

The blue snowflake is my favorite!

It will be interesting to see if any of the party-goers can taste a difference. I can’t…but I honestly don’t know if I could tell anymore!

Sadly, I think I love the sprinkles more than the cookies!

So pretty and sparkly.

Ok, I’m off to work, only 11 Holiday Shopping Days Left!

I can see the end :)

& yet the glittery sprinkles fascinate me too.

I can't believe I didn't get one last night. When you said sugar cookie, I never imagined that! I'll hold out hope that there will be more...

Those are beautiful! I used Cherrybrook Kitchen mix last year too! This year I think I'm going to make them from "scratch". To Be Posted!

Those are really pretty, I like the snowflake best too. I'm getting ready to bake also. It does get easier with time.
