Mexican Tea Cookies opens in a new tabI love cookies all year long, but there’s just something about the holiday season that really makes cookies stand out.
Maybe it’s because of all the fun cookie swaps my friends host, the sweet little cookie cutters, or how easy cookies make it to share something special with loved ones. Whatever the reason, I’m always thinking up new ways to celebrate the cookie and the holidays.
Of course, sharing cookies means being able to share them with all my friends, and luckily there are plenty of options for those who are vegan, gluten free, dairy free, and more.
Don’t forget to read the labels on any ingredients for cookies if you’re making them for special diets, as allergens can be sneaky.
Use alternative flours to create spectacular cookies with tender flavor all their own, or try flourless for a rich treat.
Think about special ingredients to bring out flavor, like dates, fresh spices, and citrus.
Try alternative milks and fats to create delicious dairy-free treats.
Making healthier choices this holiday season? Luckily, you can still enjoy these cookies that don’t sacrifice flavor or festivity.
Sometimes you can’t beat the old favorites. Make them even more special with finishing sugars, flavored extracts, and of course, pretty packaging.
