The Cookbook at a Glance

Keeping with my habit of jumping to the recipe featured on the front cover, I, of course, was drawn to the decorated Vegan Sugar Cookie Cutouts recipe found on page ten of Gluten-Free Holiday Cookies: Allergy-Friendly Sweets for Everyone.

When you get to the recipe, and especially if you’re a fan of traditional cutout cookies and following a vegan diet, making them for someone who is, or if you’re curious about making cookies with plant-based ingredients, you’ll want to put this recipe on your baking bucket list.

Brianna has truly “Upped the Ante,” as she says in the headnote, to make the cookies able to be enjoyed by everyone!

Besides using plant-based ingredients to ensure your success with this recipe, and other recipes throughout the eBook, Brianna includes several tips for baking and finishing. From how she keeps the cookie dough from stretching out of shape after rolling and cutting; to how to achieve top-notch results when frosting. You’ll learn just how to make and bake these cutouts to perfect doneness, then give them loads of eye appeal so everyone will want to gobble them up!

The recipe is only one example of what you’ll find that draws you into being excited to peruse each of the cookie recipes in every chapter.

Our #GfreeReview of Gluten-Free Holiday Cookies: Allergy-Friendly Sweets for Everyone

In this short eBook, you’ll find that all the recipes are easy to understand without overwhelming you, and most of the ingredients used in them you’ll probably already have on hand. Still, most importantly, they are super delicious lip-smacking gluten-free cookie options! No one would ever guess that these cookies are made without using wheat flour.

The first things we've made from the book.

After reading through the cookie recipes for the first few days, I couldn’t resist heading to my kitchen to make the White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies. And I was especially intrigued by the Flourless Chocolate Peppermint Cookies. Both recipes came together quickly and were made perfectly on my first try. Delicious!
And since I’m only getting started on my holiday baking, I’m confident that I’ll be whipping up many more batches before this holiday season come to fruition!

Our favorite points about the book.

Some of our favorite points of this cookbook are the headnotes as well as the directions. Brianna’s attention to the details assures that you’ll feel confident making each cookie recipe. You’ll immediately connect with her thoughtful descriptions and appreciate the little details she includes. In addition, she’s got some great ideas for substitutions and mix-ins in the notes area of many recipes. For those baking for others with allergies and anyone who may not be familiar with some ingredients, we also found it helpful that she calls out ingredients that may have allergens in them.

Here's why you'll want to read and bake from the book.

The cookbook is short, fun, and an easy read for finding the most traditional holiday cookies that you’ll want to bake during the holidays. And Brianna’s writing style makes you feel like you’re in the kitchen alongside a good friend while you’re baking from it.

As you bake your way through the three-chapter group sections, it’s easy to find just what you’re looking to make.

In the first chapter,

You’ll flip through “Classic Cookies,” recipes just like the ones Grandma used to make. Gingerbread men (page 3), sugar cookies galore, crunchy shortbread (page 5), and sprinkled spritz cookies (page 7).

The second chapter,

This is where Brianna shares her “Holiday Twists.” These are recipes where she puts her holiday twist on some of her favorites. While these cookies may not be classics, they’re fun and seasonal cookies to make. You’ll find Candy Cane Snowball Cookies (page 15), Eggnog Sugar Cookies (page 18), Gingerbread Chocolate Chip Cookies (page 20), and more.

The third chapter,

In the grand finale, we love how Brianna has included cookies from “Around the World.” She’s picked just a few of her favorite (ours too) of internationally inspired cookie recipes, like German Lebkuchen (page 28), Italian Almond Chocolate Biscotti (page 26), and the traditional cookie of her home state, Biscochitos (page 25).

About the photography,

Brianna’s photography is simple, yet it illustrates the beautifully baked cookies perfectly, tempting your tastebuds with sweet treats you’re sure to enjoy. But, as in our last club cookbook selection, we again found that it’s hard to choose just what recipe to bake first.

You'll want to read this book if...

You’re new to gluten-free baking, experienced at doing it, or looking for a collection of traditional cookie recipes that are gluten-free and offer ideas for making cookies that accommodate other allergen options.

I’m sure you’ll find this eCookbook a welcome addition to your digital bookshelf. And I’m very sure you’ll be excited to get started baking these fast, delicious gluten-free holiday-themed cookies.

They’re perfect for anyone who wants to make their holidays more allergy-friendly with flavorful treats that will WOW family and friends!
