How to Make Simple Gluten Free Christmas Cookies

 

As much as baking is fun it’s also quite time consuming and it’s especially hard to fit it in our crazy schedule during the Holidays, when we are busy with a million of other things!

In this post, I’ll show you how to make simple gluten free Christmas cookies that look and taste hand-made… even though there is a little trick.
Look at the presentation in these photos. A few stretches of chocolate drizzle, some pretty red currants and your delicious gluten free Christmas treat is ready to go down!
The secret is to find packaged gluten free cookies that taste as good as those you would put in the oven yourself… and that allows you to forget about dirty dishes and gluten free flour all over your kitchen counter.
After trying pretty much all the brands of dairy and gluten free cookies on the shelves, I finally landed on my favorite Italian gluten free brand: Schar, which now is also available in the States!

I am absolutely in love with all of their products… Do you remember the vegan and gluten free Tiramisu I prepared with their Ladyfingers?

What I used this time to create this beautiful yet simple spread of gluten free Christmas cookies is their gluten free Honey Grams! Aside from being gluten free, they are also dairy free and vegan, and are suitable for pretty much everyone!

 

The ingredient list features whole corn meal, which gives a nice “grainy” flavor to these gluten free graham crackers and gives them the nice crumbly texture of a delicious pie crust.

This treat is perfect to be served as a fun Christmas morning breakfast, especially if paired with a colorful matcha latte, which adds some green to this festive recipe and is perfect to dip the cookie and make them melt in your mouth.

…And if you are not a fan of matcha latte (yet) make sure to check out the recipe, as the simple modification I added gives a completely different and better taste!

  5. While the chocolate is still warm, decorate your gluten free Christmas cookies with some red currants, puffed millet and mint leaves. Make sure to place them on top of the melted chocolate so that they stick to it.
  6. To prepare the Matcha Latte, warm up your dairy free milk, pour it in a high speed blender together with the other ingredients and blend until the leaves are completely dissolved into the liquid.
