[pinit] I know we're down to the wire for gluten free Christmas cookies, but these gluten free chocolate cutout sugar cookies are super easy to make. If you're still looking to round out your cookie plate, these are for you!
I even had two more cookie recipes planned for you for Christmas this year, still, but I'm exercising some restraint and only showing you one. I know it'll be a while before you're willing to kiss a cookie after the holidays, so you'll have to let me know when you're ready for the second recipe. Let me just say that if you love the soft batch gluten free chocolate chip cookies, you're gonna flip over soft batch red velvet CCCs. But let's not get ahead of ourselves just yet.
I love love love it when you post photos on the blog and on Facebook of your creations using my recipes from the books and the blog. It's truly such an honor to have you bake these same recipes in your home that I developed in mine. With your own hands, for your own family and friends. Other than gluten free bread (!), the most common photo you have shared lately … is these soft frosted gluten free sugar cookies in all sorts of fabulous shapes. They look amazing, all around. Well done indeed!
It seems only fitting that you have a chocolate version. They're not too terribly different, but between the deep chocolate cocoa powder and the melted bittersweet chocolate right in the batter (don't have bittersweet? use semi-sweet – it'll be just fine!), these chocolate cutout cookies are just the thing to round out that cookie plate of yours. You can frost them (or not), sandwich them (or not). It's entirely up to you.
I know you're busy getting ready, and it means so much to me that you're still taking a few moments for this-minute holiday cookie addition. Whether you throw these together just in time, or save them for another day, thanks for playing along. I'd be so lonely without you. xo
