My collection of the Best Low-Carb Christmas Cookie Recipes will make your holidays just a little brighter because they’re fun, healthy, and super easy to make.
Growing up in Davis, a small town in Northern California, I made treats for our family friends and wrapped them in boxes, bought from our local Chinese restaurant. This was the 1970s, long before the advent of Michael’s and other craft stores.
I’d stuff each box with my homemade cookies and fudge, then add the finishing touch, a pretty red ribbon; then my parents would drive me all over town for our own Christmas cookie delivery.
When the boys were teenagers our family “Christmas cookie delivery” ended because my healthy gluten-free Christmas cookies rarely made it past the kitchen counter.
Most of the time, close to a dozen teenagers filled our house, eating everything in site! Although it was busy, I love that we were the house where everyone gathered for their favorite gluten-free Christmas desserts and so much more.
Now I have wonderful memories of the boys and their friends and I bake onward, giving treats to friends and neighbors. Since you’re probably baking too I thought I’d share my Christmas cookie ideas with you.
