Gluten Free Holiday Baking

(This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, see my disclosure policy.)

One of the things I most look forward to about the holiday season is the baking. I’m actually not much of an eater when it comes to cookies and cakes, but I enjoy making them. And there is something extra special about baking with the sound of Christmas music in the background and the Christmas spirit in the air. What I like best of all though is watching others enjoy them.

Unfortunately, after our son Einstein became gluten free, many of my usual holiday baking recipes didn’t work for him so I had to begin a quest to find some new holiday favourites. I was also able to adapt some of our usual recipes to make them gluten free.
