25 Days of Gluten Free Giveaways™- Pamela’s Products PLUS Christmas Wreath Cookies & Gluten-Free Cookie Exchange Recipes

Christmas Wreath Cookies {Gluten-Free}

I found these Christmas wreath cookies on Pinterest from Sugar Pot awhile back and thought immediately that I needed to come up with my own recipe to make them gluten-free. Thanks goodness for great gluten-free blends like Pamela’s Products all-purpose flour. It made it easy to come up with a great recipe that met my gluten-free needs. This flour can easily be used in lots of recipes. I have especially found success with it in making cookies.

I have to say that the baking and pancake mix is my absolute favorite product from Pamela’s Products. The taste of these pancakes is still my family’s favorite even after trying nearly every other brand on the market. Remember how cute these groundhog day pancakes were that I made this spring? Get the full recipe HERE.

Christmas Wreath Cookies {Gluten-Free}

Yield: 24 cookies


  • 1 3/4 C gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Real Salt
  • 1/2 C butter
  • 1/4 C granulated sugar
  • 1/4 C powdered sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp. gluten-free vanilla
  • 2 T milk
  • 1/4 C raw, shelled pistachios
  • 1 1/2 C powdered sugar
  • 3-4 T milk
  • 1/2 C dried cranberries
  • 1/2 C raw pistachios, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350?. Combine flour, salt, butter, baking powder and sugars. Slowly add the vanilla and 2 T milk. Add eggs in one at a time and combine. In a food processor, chop 1/4 pistachios until finely ground then add to the dough. On a gluten-free floured surface, roll out the dough and cut into wreaths using a linzer cookie cutter. Pop out centers using a small center linzer cookie cutter. Bake at 350? for 7-8 minutes or until golden brown. Let cookies cool on a rack. While the cookies are cooling, make the glaze by combining 1 1/2 C powdered sugar with 3-4 T milk. Use more milk if needed to get a thinner glaze consistency. When cookies are cooled, dip the tops into glaze. Top with chopped pistachios and dried cranberries.

  80. Kathy Simkins Kathy Simkins

    Greetings from Enterprise, Ut about 40 miles north west of you. Saw you this morning on GTU and was thrilled. On my city block there are 4 families impacted by gluten issues. We bounce ideas off of each other. So far there are about 20 families that I know of that are gluten free here in our little town. My gf adventure started August of 2014 when I finally figured out what my problems were caused by when the sacrament bread nailed me. I have been “Cooking on Mars” ever since. I still grind the flour for my husband’s whole wheat bread but now I am completely gluten free. I have a multi mill and grind most of my own flour. ( I love this mill much better than the old wheat only mill I have used for 40+ years.) I have my own butter dish and my own toaster. One bay of my kitchen is exclusively gluten free. ( Good thing I designed my kitchen layout about 10 years ago. Really works for me and my 2 eating style household.) I can’t wait to try this recipe. Thanks from a new fan in Enterprise.

    • Chandice Chandice


      Thank you so much for taking the time to write this. I always love hearing from new friend and followers especially here in Utah! I am always here if you have any questions and love hearing that all is going so well for you. Keep up the great work, I am sure you are such a help to those families around you. :)
