Expert Tips

Michelle Bowman from Sammamish, WA created this recipe for a Celebrate the Season Holiday Cookie Contest.

"It is hard being the only gluten-free member in my family. I love to bake, and my kids love cookies. I wanted a cookie that I could eat along with them, especially at Christmas, so I adapted this recipe. My kids and husband can’t tell that it is gluten free, and they have all suggested I use this recipe for our neighborhood cookie exchange." Michelle Bowman
