Snowball’s chance

These cookies have a snowball’s chance of lasting more than four minutes in a hot tub. Or, else they are just that good.

They are so good actually, that the first batch didn’t last two hours in the cookie box. candy cane

Yum. The good news is that even gluten-free christmas cookies are not only POSSIBLE, but they are delicious. Who knew?


Mix together:

  • 2/3 cup palm shortening

  • 1/2 cup Powdered sugar

  • 2 tsp vanilla

  • 2 1/4 cups GF flour mix

  • 2 tsp xanthan gum

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 cups mini chocolate chips

  • 2 T Hot water as needed

Mix the sugar and shortening, add the vanilla and cream all together. Add the xanthan gum, and salt to the potato starch and then mix into the batter. Continue to mix in the flour a little a time with some of the water until you get a good “playdough” consistancy.

Make 1 inch balls of dough. Put them on parchment paper lined cookie sheets and bake them for 15 minutes at 350. Bake them until they are set, but not browned. Immediately after removing them from the oven, roll them in powdered sugar. Let them cool on cooling racks. Then roll them again in the powdered sugar for a nice final coating. So delicious. candy cane
