In case you missed my very first recipe and blog post in February of this year Gluten Free Spritz Cookies, I’m here to share it for you again for Christmas. Baking cookies for Christmas is one of my favorite things to do, it calms me down and I love to give them away as gifts to friends and family. Well I’ve been at it again, like I have been every year since my early teens and here are the results. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas/ Holiday Season!!
