Gluten-Free Christmas Cookie Recipes

Your child can still enjoy those holiday treats even if wheat's off the menu


A big tray of cookies frosted red and green, sparkling with sugar and speckled with nuts, cut into stars or pressed down with thumbprints, is as much a part of family Christmas memories as a tinsel-decked tree or a jolly visitor in a red suit. If your child has to avoid gluten, those cookies might seem to be no-nos -- but these recipes from around the Web, described by their authors as being gluten-free, can help you say yes to sugar cookies, gingersnaps, and all those traditional treats.
