A Gluten Free Holiday - Alta of Tasty Eats at Home

This week's "A Gluten Free Holiday" is being hosted by Alta of Tasty Eats at Home. Alta chose the theme of Gifts of Good Taste. What are good gluten free food items to share with friends and family over the holidays? 

My personal favorite food gift to make is cookies. Cookies are fun and relatively easy to make. You don't have to be an unusually gifted baker to make good cookies and they can be beautifully presented in any type of little bag along with a ribbon! 

Here are 3 of my favorite gluten free cookie recipes to give away for the holidays!

Gluten Free Double Fudge Walnut Cookies
A cookie I created for a local cookie swap I attended several years ago, it's a rich fudgy cookie, that you don't have to feel too guilty about eating. One of my favorites!

The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies
Michael's absolute favorite. I think he could live off these cookies. I make these every year on Thanksgiving  for people to munch on throughout the day, they are always gone before dinner!

Gluten Free Gingerbread Cookies.
I love making cut out cookies and decorating them. This is one of my very favorite cookies and one we'll be making when my friend Angie comes for our yearly Holiday visit.  We also used this dough to make a gluten free gingerbread house last year. You'll love these cookies!


As with our previous weeks of "A Gluten Free Holiday" you'll find a spectacular giveaway at Alta's! The books this week are 5 COPIES of  Free For All Cooking by Jules Shepard of Jules Gluten Free and 2 copies of Kelly & Peter Bronski's Artisanal Gluten Free Cooking

  1. Hi Carrie, I love all your cookies, but especially those gingerbread men! It reminds me of making them with my son a long time ago. ;-)

    I plan to get my post up later today.


  2. My youngest was complaining today that his preschool friend had a gingerbread man in his lunchbox and why hadn't I made on for him? Thank you for providing the 'how to make' answer for me!

  3. I hope you and your hubby have a wonderful Thanksgiving Carrie! xo, carol
