I am honored to be participating in a wonderful event taking place now through December  23rd called Home for the Holidays – - Gluten Free Style. This celebration is the brainchild of my dear friend Shirley over at Gluten Free Easily. All together, we two dozen bloggers have come together to celebrate all the wonderful foods that say home to each of us. This could be a recipe that has been passed down through the  generations.

It’s no surprise that there have been some pretty amazing submissions thus far. And the future posts are sure to not disappoint.

Besides the fantastic recipes, the best part of this event is the near 100 prizes being given away.  There will be daily drawings for which you’ll have to comment to enter (below on my recipe submission). Each and every time/day you make a comment  it ups your chances for winning the grand prizes.  Just have a look-see at these beauties!

2nd prize: a shopping spree at Free from Gluten (valued at $150)

The grand prize: a Vitamix 5200 (valued at $550 – wow !)

Today, I am going to be giving away one copy each of these three fabulous books. Suffice it to say you can’t go wrong here – I don’t think it’s even possible to be unhappy about any one of these wonderful choices!

The Gluten Free Asian Kitchen

The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook

pumpkin chocolate chip cookies

As far back as I can remember, my mom would bake for us. After school, we would come home to the most amazing smells…anything from freshly baked rustic bread loaves, to tea breads, cookies and lemon bars. As I have mentioned before, friends used to love coming over as there was always something “just out of the oven.” I want to be able to give my children that same memory. Whether it’s Christmas-time or not. Already they love being in the kitchen, helping to measure flour, operating the stand mixer and spooning cookie dough onto parchment. We’re making memories. And it’s so much fun.

These cookies are a favorite in our house because they are kid size – perfect for their little mouths. They are also a great bite-size dessert for a party. I brought these allergy-friendly treasures into school for both my daughter and my son’s Thanksgiving “feasts.”  It was the perfect treat because every single child in the class was able to eat one right off the plate. For children with allergies/food sensitivities there is no greater joy than to be able to have what everyone else is having. After all, food is about community, right?  It has an amazing way of bringing people together. I love that. These cookies also accompanied me just last weekend to the annual New York City Cookie Swap, a fundraiser for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer (sponsored by Bloggers without Borders). Ninety plus local foodies gathered together to support a great cause and share beautiful cookies all while ushering in the holiday season. So, these cookies have been around the block or two. I am so happy to be able to share them with everyone.

For my grain free friends, I posted this pumpkin chocolate chip cookie last year.

pumpkin chocolate chip cookies (vegan, nut free, soy free)

1/2 c / 2oz / 57g sorghum flour
1/2 c / 4 oz / 114g brown rice (superfine)
2/3 c / 4 oz / 114g tapioca starch
3/4 tsp xanthan gum
pinch salt
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 c / 4oz / 114 g brown sugar
1/3 c / 3oz / 80ml oil (I used grapeseed)
1 c / 8oz / 228g organic pumpkin (I used canned)
1/3 c/3oz / 85g mashed banana
1/4 c / 2oz / 60ml maple syrup (I used grade B)
2 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips (optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place sorghum, rice flour, tapioca starch, xanthan gum, salt, spices,  baking powder and soda in one bowl. Whisk to combine.
  3. Place brown sugar, oil, pumpkin, banana, maple syrup and vanilla in another mixing bowl. Whisk gently to combine.
  4. Transfer flour into wet ingredients. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, stir in the ingredients just until combined (overmixing here makes a sad cookie). Fold in the chocolate chips (if using).
  5. Spoon out batter in 1 tablespoon dollops onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment. I used a mini ice cream scoop. It’s just a wee bit bigger than a melon-baller. If you choose to make bigger cookies, be sure to adjust your baking time.
  6. Bake for 9 minutes. Leave cookies on parchment. Transfer/slide the parchment carefully onto a cooling rack.
  7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 with the remaining cookie batter.
    48 cookies.

    For a holiday meal, I always think of eating leftovers late on Christmas night. It’s kind of sad because the day is over, but it’s fun to sit around, eat, and talk about the day.

    That’s a tough one. I think all the goodies (desserts) are the holidays to me. You don’t splurge on things that take a long time to make, use obscure ingredients, are maybe a little pricey, any other time of year.

    I posted this on my Fb. I will have to try out these cookies. Im gluten free but I have 2 friends that can’t eat gluten, soy dairy, beens. They don’t like to use refined sugar but I think they wouldn’t mind this cookie recipe. I have s hard time cooking for them.

  40. Rachel Williams said:

    I think a dish my Mom would make, roasted sweet potatoes and apples really capture the holidays for me.

  41. Jessica said:

    My mom always made cream cheese cookies with a cookie press. We smothered them in lemon glaze and sprinkles and they were so good! She even gave us our own batch to decorate when we were sick. I’m hoping to make them gluten and egg free for my kids so we can continue the tradition. :)

  63. Laurel said:

    Unusual I know but my mom used to make a Veal Pocket. I guess it was like a big cut of veal sliced open and then filled with ground beef, rice, pine nuts, some kind of Middle Eastern spice mix. Yum. Now though, it’s a perfectly roasted turkey with a home made Gingerbread House as a centerpiece. P.S. These are one of my all time favorite cookie. I started making them when I went GFDFEG 3 years ago and haven’t been able to stop! Oh, Deanna just gave me a terrible/wonderful idea. Pumpkin rolls stuffed with cinnamon and chocolate. I can’t believe I’m saying this but there’s too much GF goodness out there. It’s a completely different world than it was just a few years ago and I am so incredibly thankful.

    We used to be SO TRADITIONAL for Christmas dinner, but now we change it up and try something new each year. Last year was Thai and this year is German ~ but one thing is always a constant no matter what the dinner theme. PIE! Blueberry and Pumpkin and usually one other flavor too… It wouldn’t be the holidays without pie.

    Thanks for a great new recipe to enjoy and share!

  91. Andi said:

    This looks so good! Can’t wait to try them. Oddly enough – it’s just the pomegranate that makes me remember being a little girl on Christmas eve. My family would open them up and enjoy the hour or so of picking out the little bits of juicy yumminess while talking all about the holiday. So now whenever I see a pom I get that warm feeling :}

    One of my favorite holiday recipes is my mother-in-law’s raw cranberry-apple relish. I look forward to it each year. This year, I was recovering from surgery the week of Thanksgiving and had planned to make the recipe for the first time for my side of the family. I didn’t have as much energy as I had hoped, and my husband’s parents graciously made the recipe for me so that I could take it to my parents’ gathering. It takes a while to peel and chop the apples and get the sweetener just right, and it was so kind of them to do it for me. I was blessed to be able to take it, and happy to gobble up the leftovers.

  99. Al said:

    Being Italian and Catholic, here is Ohio on Christmas Eve dinner, we have no meats…just pastas, Lake Erie yellow perch, spiced wine and veggie casseroles. My all time favor is the Lake Erie Perch!

  100. Sarah M said:

    Cranberry sauce. It really doesn’t matter what the main event is, or what the other sides are. Because they will be covered in the sauce.

  101. Jewels said:

    I think sweet potato/pumpkin crust-free pie does it for me! It’s the right amount of savoury and sweet! Also, I love topping all edibles with a dash of ginger and cinnamon!

  102. Gayle J said:

    I think turkey and stuffing, strawberry pretzel salad, and corn pudding.

  103. Kelly said:

    While lots has changed over the years in the dishes that are made for the holidays, the one thing that has stayed consistent has been mashed Turnips and Carrots. No holiday meal is complete without them in my home!

    I have a sweet tooth and lots of pumpkin leftover from Halloween and Thanksgiving.. will have to try the cookies. Thanks for the recipe!

    The most important food for me during the holidays is lumpia. My mom is Filipina American and every year we’d make my grandmother’s vegetarian lumpia recipe and serve it at our Christmas Eve party. I don’t know if there’s a way to make it gluten free, but Christmas dinner isn’t the same without it.

    Anything peppermint speaks “holidays” for me! Can’t wait to try this recipe tho!

    I am doing a happy dance right now! These look awesome! My niece is coming over on Thursday to make cookies with my daughter and I (they are both 3 years old). Because I am gluten free, and my daughter is egg and nut free, I wasn’t sure what to make. Now I know!

    Funny enough, the dish that says holidays to me is a pumpkin/chocolate chip bread my mom always made. I haven’t attempted to make it gluten free yet, but these cookies will fit the bill this year!

  156. Tracy S. said:

    Christmas cookies seem to capture the holiday spirit for me :) I would love to win any of these cookbooks!

  157. Rachel said:

    I have so many favorite holiday foods but nothing is merrier than my own handmade holiday cookies!

  158. Elise G said:

    The one food that says “holidays” all over it for me is my grandmother’s Swedish Gingerbread, Pepparkokkor. Every year my grandparents would send a huge box full of presents, swedish candy (which my mom loves), kit-kat bars, and their intricately decorated gingerbread santas and trees. My grandfather’s artist passion came out in this yearly task.

    I have not been able to replicate the recipie in a gluten-free manner, but we always do a GF sugar cookie cut-out complete with frosting and sprinkles. One of my 3 daughters is also an artist and this is a way for her to express it. The circle of the family goes on!

  159. Elise G said:

    I posted this to facebook. Thanks!

  160. Catybakes said:

    The cookies capture the essence of the holidays around here. Gingerbread, sugar cookie cut-outs and spritz are the ones to ring in the holiday season. Hopefully I will adapt them well!

  161. Rachel said:

    Pumpkin anything! Pie, bread, pudding, etc. So holiday-esque…

  162. Mena said:

    these look awesome. Can other squashes be used too?

  163. Rebecca Avery said:

    The holidays for me is all about cookies and I have great memories of my grandma making every possible kind. I can’t wait to try these.

  164. Stephanie said:


    I haven’t tried using any other kind of squash — but I bet butternut would be a great place to start. It has the smoothest consistency. I would love to hear how it comes out if you give it a shot!


  165. Laura Harmasch said:

    Our family tradition is to make quiche. I got rid of the crust a while back and like it even better now.

  166. Sheila said:

    Nothing says holidays like a gingerbread house!!

  167. Kate said:

    Christmas pudding…that English style, steamed filled with currants and raisins and hot butter sauce….ahhhhh
    dunno if that will ever be in my future again. Unless some kind soul comes up with a g/f recipe!

Not only am I GF, but a good friend of mine follows a very strict vegan diet (it has really helped her MS) SO I’m always looking for things that are good that I can make and share with her. This will make a great side addition to her Christmas gift!! :D

  190. Kate K said:

    This whole Holiday gf blogfest has been such a blessing… finding so many other helpful blogs like yours is a wonderful Christmas present! I think Cookies have got to really say ‘Christmas’ to me too…or maybe my signature creamy mocha fudge. ;)

  191. LisaR said:

    Being British, my favorite holiday dish is mince pies: mmm so tasty with all their rich dried fruit and nuts! Easy to make vegan and gluten free with a gluten free pastry crust! Great holiday giveaway, thanks – just shared on facebook!.

  192. Dionne R said:

    These little bites look scrumptious! Can’t wait to try them. I think the food that says holidays to me is the vinatarta (Icelandic cake) that my mom makes every year at Christmas time. One of these days I will work on a GF version…

    Roasted veggies, chestnuts. I’m always into brussel sprouts during the holidays. Or any form of a dish with winter squashes and sweet potatoes are all up there. And making my mom’s awesome shortbread which we will be trying to make gluten/grain-free this year. Those all say holiday to me.

This is exciting! I really love pumpkin spices and, of course, chocolate in this season. Actually, tomorrow my family is coming over for cookie baking day and I think that I will have to try this recipe. This kind of recipe is what I love for the holidays!

  233. Karen said:

    For me it doesn’t matter what food it is as long as it is shared with the people I love. What defines the holidays is all of us in the kitchen working on the meal. I am partial to the turkey….especially the skin (I know, I know….) but we’ve had ribs, hams, stroganoff….it doesn’t matter as long as my peeps are there.

    The cookies look fantastic. A Christmas Turkey Dinner use to be my family traditional dinner until I got married. My husband’s family always did a pot of meatballs and sausage and the day was more relaxing. We as a family look forward to the meatballs and sausge and the day together.

  241. Stephanie said:

    The essence of the holidays in meal from can be a lot of things for me :) Cookie and treat platters, that perfectly cooked prime rib roast dinner, or even a glass of eggnog.

  249. Sandy said:

    Fruitcake. The dark, heavy kind with all the horrifying, artificially-colored candied fruit. Love it. My mother had a recipe she clipped out of a magazine 60-odd years ago, and we made it every winter. Funny – the aunt who liked it least, always was happy to receive one, as she did a lot of entertaining, and thought a couple slices of fruitcake rounded out a New Year’s buffet cookie platter perfectly, and she’d always have a few guests who liked it.
    Now, I suppose I’d use dried fruit (except for the citron and citrus peel – that has to be candied). But we treated it like candy rather than cake – a 2×2″ piece was a full serving; nobody ever OD’d on it.

  250. Cindy W. said:

    Ham with cheesy potatoes is our traditional Christmas Eve dinner.

  251. Karen Culbertson said:

    My favorite holiday dish is Berry Mallow Yam Bake – made it gluten-free this year and thought it was fabulous – kids thought it tasted grainy and had to make it the original way for them – drats!

  252. Larisa said:

    I love lasagna for the holidays – not very traditional, but I can do one gluten free vegan, and another meaty one for the rest of the family, and everyone is thrilled . And for desserts – anything with pumpkin, or a apple cranberry pie!

  253. Shelby said:

    Steamed Cranberry Pudding with Golden Sauce will always be the essence of the holidays for me! My grandmother (whose family was British) made this pudding every year and hid special coins in the bottom of some of the dishes for lucky people to find. This dish will always remind me of the warmth and love of my grandma, besides the fact that it is super yummy. I just have to figure out how to make it gluten and refined sugar-free so that I can keep on enjoying it and pass it on to my own children!

  254. Lisa Northcutt said:

    I love sweet potatoes. Although we eat them throughout the fall, Holidays would be incomplete if they were not on the table.

  255. Christie said:

    My family’s quintessential holiday dish is persimmon pudding, with a buttery sweet foamy sauce. This is a pudding in the English sense, a steamed pudding that is more a moist cake than what American’s think of as pudding. It is soooo good. Being grain free, that was a “must convert” recipe. And, after a few tries, we have a very good version. Thank goodness, because the holidays just wouldn’t be the same without it.
