Now that I’m an expert at grain-free roll out cookies I can whip some up at the drop of a hat. With Hanukkah and Christmas right around the corner I thought I would rustle up some candy canes, Christmas trees, stars of David and some snowflakes.
The batter is one you know and love, Bella’s Muerbe Teig — the same that I used for my amazing linzer cookies. This butter dough is adapted for people who are grain-free, dairy-free and on the SCD and GAPS diets as well. This dough is easy to make and may be stored in the freezer until you are ready to bake the cookies. That’s what I did and it was really nice to have the dough all ready!
Watch the video for the linzer cookie recipe to see how the dough is made. All the instructions are the same except you use holiday cookie cutters and the cookies are not sandwiched. I used a little cinnamon to decorate the cookies. Even though there are “natural” colorings available to use for decorating, if you are on the GAPS or the SCD you do not want to chance using something like that.
You could use coconut whipped cream to decorate these cookies. Here is the link to that video/recipe. I decided to leave these plain. If anyone has any SCD or GAPS legal ways to decorate cookies please let me know in a comment below.
