Growing up, Christmas was one of my favorite memories….especially the Christmas cookies! We made so many different kinds. I always loved the cut-outs the best because after cutting them out and baking them you also got to frost and decorate them!
My kids share the same cookie favorite. So, because we are gluten-free, I needed to come up with a gluten-free cut-out recipe. Well, I decided to go a step further and make it a grain-free cut-out cookies recipe! They turned out even better than I could have imagined!
