I love Christmas and am always trying to make new Christmas recipes. These Gluten Free Christmas Cookies are the best things to have everyone happy this Christmas and what’s more, they’re Gluten Free Christmas vegan Cookies. Christmas cookies are one of my favourite things to make during the holiday season and I’m not kidding when I say I could eat hundreds!

Vegan Christmas Cookies

If you’re in the market for the best vegan cookies about, these may be in your top list. They look amazing, play the Christmas part so well and taste great. This vegan Christmas cookies recipe might look a little complicated but I have to say it’s actually quite simple to make and a lot of fun in the process.

If you love your festive baking as much as I do then you have to try these cookies, well more like Christmas biscuits when they’re cooked to be fair but it doesn’t matter what you call them; they still look amazing!

I have to say vegan cookie ideas are a little hard to come by, they all seem to be the same and when I’ve searched online I’m not finding a great deal that I want to make; which is why I’ve got inventive! However, you can’t go wrong with some classics and vegan cookies are one thing I love baking!

These dairy free Christmas cookies are the perfect treat for someone like me that’s for sure!

Equipment You Will Need To Make Orange & Cinnamon Stained Glass Window Biscuits Recipe

So you will need some bits to make this Christmas recipe with although trust me you don’t really need a lot. I love these recipes where you don’t need to have a fully stocked kitchen with the latest kitchen gadgets that I could never afford!

Star Cookie Cutters – I see this recipe made best as stars, this star cookie recipe is best in my opinion although you can use other shapes if you want. You can use festive cookie cutters but you might need to put fewer sweets in.

Silicone Baking Mat – Trust me, for this recipe you’re going to want to use a silicone baking mat, the sweets won’t stick to it like they do on baking parchment or normal trays and they’re easier to use and wash! I’d also suggest using a silicone spatula as well.

Let me know what you think about these stained glass Christmas cookies. They taste really nice, have a kick of flavour to them although for me the best part is how decorative they look.

If you would like to turn these into tree decorations you can poke a hole through the top for a ribbon to go into at a later date. I haven’t done that with this recipe but it would be great to know if you did!
As always make sure all ingreidents are vegan or to your diatry requirments, make sure they haven’t changed either, just because you’ve been using them for years doesn’t mean they don’t get changed.
