When it comes to Christmas, cookies aren’t optional – they’re a must! It’s not about indulging in sweets (well, maybe a little), as much as it is about the joy in coming together as a family to build fond memories and family traditions.
And the fact is, you can absolutely enjoy the fun holiday tradition of decorating cookies without compromising good health. How? By choosing a healthy cookie recipe and topping it with wholesome decorating options!
To help, I’d like to pass on my favorite new grain-free “Sugar” Cookie Cut-Out recipe to you and your family – it’s one of more than 100 delicious baking recipes featured in my new cookbook – Everyday Grain-Free Baking!
To decorate, we like to use a variety of dried fruits – cutting them into small bits and strips – as well as crispy nuts and unsweetened shredded coconut. My Dairy-Free Sweet Vanilla Icing also makes a delicious, healthier way to decorate your favorite holiday cookies, cakes and other desserts.
My hope in sharing this recipe is that many more families will take time out from all the hustle & bustle that often comes with this season, and instead enjoy time together building joyful memories to last a lifetime! With a little prayer and purposeful planning, decorating cookies together can be a fun and focused time where beautiful conversations can take place about the true reason for the season!
This delightful recipe is just one of more than 100 irresistible grain-free, dairy-free recipes in my new cookbook – Everyday Grain-Free Baking!
From breads, biscuits and muffins to savory snacks and decadent treats, you’ll find step-by-step instructions, beautiful color photographs and helpful tips & tidbits to make all of your GF baking adventures a delicious success!
Wishing you and your family a blessed Christmas and New Year, Kelly
