Christmas Cookies: Gluten Free, Dairy Free (options), and Health”ier” ‘Tis the season of yummy cookies and to tell you the truth the last few years the cookies have been far from delicious!  But, slowly year by year they have become better and better!  This is the first year I feel that my cookie platter would be suitable to serve anyone and they would enjoy them.  So, here are some of my traditional favorite that you can serve up this season- all Gluten Free with Dairy Free Options!

Stay tuned, tomorrow my hubby and I are doing our first video adventure together, I am hopeful by tomorrow night you will all be able to watch Kelli’s Kitchen and get 1 on 1 insturctions on how to make my grandmas sugar cookies (gluten free/diary free) and our favorite sprits cookies as well.  I will post it as soon as we get it done.  It will be a youtube video!
