Tips for Vegan/Gluten-Free Christmas Cookies

The holidays are busy enough as is and nobdy has time for a pan of yucky inedible cookies. Let’s set you up for Christmas cookie success.

Room Temperature Ingredients: I’m sure you’ve heard or seen this in just about every recipe but it truly is vital. When ingredients are different temperatures, they don’t properly combine often creating a flat and/or dense cookie.

Gluten-Free Flour: There are so many different gluten-free flour blends available on the market today. Each with it’s own advantanges and disadvantages. My personal favorite for baking is Primal Palate but as long as the 1:1 baking blend contains xanthan gum, it will work.

Baking Time: We’ve all experienced that dry gritty gluten-free vegan christmas cookie that practically turns to dust as you take a bite. No thanks! To ensure a moist and chewy cookie, slightly under-baking is key. Look for set, lightly golden brown cookie edges with an under-baked cookie center.
