Cassie's Favorite Christmas Cookie Recipe
Merry Christmas Y'all!
Today I am sharing my all time FAVORITE Christmas cookie recipe! Many of you may or may not know that I have Celiac's Disease, this version has been done with Gluten Free flour and a little xanthum gum for those of us with gluten intolerant tummies! You can also follow the recipe exactly with regular flour if you don't have a gluten free diet.
Now this Cookie sounds interesting but I am telling you it is always requested and my number 1 fan favorite. This is a recipe from my grandmother to my mother to me, and now I am sharing it with you! Are you ready to have your world rocked?! Let's Bake.
