Seriously Scrumptious Gluten-Free Cookies

We’re buckling up for the holidays. I’m full steam ahead with recipe and dessert planning, not to mention photo planning to capture every moment. The stand mixer is firing on all cylinders. Batches of cookies are flowing (for sustenance, obviously). 

Is anyone else slowly losing counter space and freezer space to tins, containers, and zip-lock bags filled with everything from snickerdoodles to ladyfingers? It’s like a cookie tsunami in here.

Really, it’s the cold weather’s fault. All the chilly afternoons are perfect for baking. So, to recruit more of you into the madness, I’m sharing a bunch of the cookie recipes that have been taking over my kitchen lately. Fair warning: you’re going to want to try them all!

Speaking of my stand mixer, it is definitely worth investing in a heavy-duty one if you plan to do a lot of cookie baking. They mix through thick cookie doing better than any hand mixer, and you can crank out dozens and dozens in no time. I’ve been using the same KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer since I got it in 2003, and it is still going strong.
