2007 Gluten Free Christmas Cookie Roundup!

Cookies are one of my favorite things about Christmas! I originally wanted to have an "online cookie swap" of sorts, but so many of us were already posting Christmas Cookie recipes, I thought it would be easier just to list them all and share them with everyone! I’ve done my “darndest” to find all the best gluten-free Christmas cookies out there, but if I accidentally missed one you would like posted, please let me know ASAP (email me at gingerlemon_girl(at)yahoo(dot)com)!! I promise I didn’t miss you on purpose!! I've done a TON of searching (and editing and editing and editing and editing... Blogger and I have not been friends during this post!! But that’s another story!!)

The cookies have been separated into categories for your convenience. If you don't want to read through the entire list, simply click on a cookie category below and you will be taken directly to that set of cookies! (Please give a big Thank You to Casey Yandle, who helped me to get these links working correctly!!)

  1. Wow! What a list! I'm glad Daddy's peanut brittle made it on. I just wasn't able to get around to the cookies yet. Great job, Carrie.

  2. Cassandra -- Thanks so much girl! I'm glad you like the post! I'm hoping I can get around to making that peanut brittle for my dad too!!

  3. Incredible! I can't believe the list you compiled. I'm going to be busy baking away! Great job!

  4. Carol -- Thanks girl (I have a fondness for your name, that is both my aunt's name and my mom-in-law's name!) I'm so glad you like the list!!

  5. Wow, nice job. I was just about to post my own x-mas cookie roundup, but I guess I won't bother now - This is so comprehensive. Good job.

  6. By the Bay -- Thank you! I'm sorry I had no idea you were posting one too! I'm glad you liked this! I don't know how you do so many round ups throughout the year! This was about all I could handle!!

  7. What a great job Carrie. Thanks for posting combining all of these wonderful recipes in one spot.

    Have a wonderul holiday.

  8. Carrie - Wonderful job on all the different types of cookies. There are some from blogger baker's I didn't know...thanks for introducing me to their cooking. Thanks for doing the cookie round up.

    Happy Holidays!

    Sheltie Girl @ Gluten A Go Go

  9. Sheltie Girl -- That was really the fun part! I discovered all of gluten free bloggers that I knew nothing about! I'm glad to share them with you! If you make any of these! let us know how they turned out!

  10. Hi Carrie,
    Thanks so much for the link to my Cashew Chocolate Chip Cookie! What a great idea.

    As a holistic baker, I tend to use a fair amount of gluten free recipes. I just recently also posted another one, GF Pumpkinseed Shortbread Buttons, made with pumpkinseed butter.

    I took some time to glance around your blog as well, and so much of the baking looks yummy--I will have to explore more.

    Have a great (cookie-filled) Christmas!

  11. That is quite the list! Great job! It must have taken you all weekend! It's so nice to see in one place what everyone is baking.

  12. Ricki -- SO glad you like the post! I was happy to post your recipe! Wow those pumpkin seed butter cookies sound delicious! If I don't have any other issues with this editing this ##()$*&#($& post, I'll add your cookie! (LOL I have had a TIME with this post!!) Thanks so much for sharing!

    GLUTI GIRL -- Thanks so much for commenting!! I'm so glad you liked it! You cookies look SOOO good! Were they all eaten at your party??

  13. Wow, what a great list! Thanks for compiling and sharing it.

    I hope you'll submit something to my gluten-free holiday blogging event, as well:

  14. Thanks for such a great list - and for putting me on it even though I am a big idiot and deleted my blog! You might want to check the surprise package cookies link - I transferred the post to the correct place once I got it back today :-)

  15. thanks for the list - it is a little overwhelming but I have already found some cookies I'd love to try - so many good recipes and so little time!

  16. Thanks for compiling this amazing list! And thanks for including my recipe for chocolate chip cookies on it. I can't wait to try all of these fantastic recipes.


  17. teeth whitener

    You have amassed quite a list! Thanks so much for sharing these, my husband is on a gluten-free diet and I want him to enjoy the holidays too.

  18. thanks for the list! so far i've made 3 of them. Now if I can just figure out a snickerdoodle for my husband Christmas will be just right.

  19. This is nothing short of fabulous, Carrie! Great job! And thank God somebody (well, several somebodies, it turns out) can turn out some decent gluten free Christmas treats.

  20. Wow! I just stumbled on this today! Thanks for the link love and all the great recipes. You did some serious work on this post, girlfriend!

    Hope you have a Merry Christmas and I look forward to joining the gluten free menu swap again after the first of the year. Might even sign up to host, if I can figure out how to make it look all spiffy like you do!

  21. My goodness, you've been busy!

    Just stopped by to say Happy Christmas to you and yours, hope you have a good one :-)

  22. Sweet! Fabulous post, Carrie. Thanks for all the hard work it took to put this list together.

    I'm researching shortbread cookies (now that I have to be egg-free, too; shortbread is egg-free). Hoping to come up with a tasty shortbread cookie that is gluten, dairy, nut and soy free.

    Have a healthy, safe and happy New Year!
