Menu Plan December 3 – Holiday Cookies

By · Print This Post Print This Post

There is no denying the holidays are upon us now. Christmas lights and decorations are out everywhere, Christmas music is playing in all the busy shops, and the kids are already getting anxious. I’ve taken a break from the baking, but I think it’s time to get started again. And cookies is a good place to start. I love cookies. The theme for the Gluten-Free Menu Swap this week is Cookies. Lisa is hosting it at Extraordinary Life. I know Lisa has a lot of cookie recipes on her blog, so make sure you check it out!

Last month I made snicker doodles by using this sugar cookie recipe and rolling the dough into balls, then rolling in cinnamon sugar, and slightly flattening with fingers before baking. I also made Angela’s Ginger Snaps, which turned out perfectly! I liked them fresh and chewy. If you like them crisp and snappy, then you can leave them uncovered (or lightly covered overnight).

Other cookies I like to make for the holidays:

Snowman Meringues

Christmas Tree Meringues

Cut-out Sugar Cookies


Celiac Family’s Menu This Week:

Simple Parmesan Asparagus


Pulled Pork, slow-cooked

Monday –  Tuscan Chicken, Roasted Red Potatoes, Asparagus

Tuesday – Pizza (picked up some frozen Deby crusts to try) served with Spinach Salad

Wednesday – Fish Tacos with Guacamole and Slaw

Thursday Pulled Pork Sandwiches, served with leftover slaw and green beans

Friday – Eating Out

Saturday – Chicken Nuggets or Chick-fil-a for the Kids, party for the parents

Sunday – leftovers
