When it comes to holiday baking, cookies are one of the most popular items on the list.  Bring on the cookie swaps and dessert trays!  If you or your loved ones are avoiding gluten due to allergies or sensitivities, you will need go-to gluten-free cookie recipes to add to your collection.

To help bring about some baking inspiration, I’ve asked a few of my dietitian colleagues to share their favorite gluten-free (most are also dairy-free) Christmas cookie recipes!  From chocolate peppermint, oatmeal butterscotch, peanut butter blueberry, to classic chocolate chip, we’ve got something for every palate.  Happy baking!
