Christmas Spice Cookies (V/GF)

As I sit here on my couch typing this up on my tablet, while watching Christmas movies, and munching on one of these cookies, there are snow flurries outside (snow in Texas, what the heck!?!). I can’t help but think, It can’t get better or more Christmas-y than “this”.

These cookies taste very similar to molasses cookies, without there actually being any molasses in them. These make me want to share them with everyone, I guess I need to start a vegan Christmas cookie exchange, or just start gifting them out hahah. I have been in a baking mood big time lately, and now I have way too many sweets in the house, Its a problem…

These Christmas Spice cookies are;

Soft in the middle

Crisp around the edges

Spiced

Perfectly Sweet

Vegan

Gluten-Free

&

Holiday Festive.

I hope you love this cookie recipe!
