This mimosa recipe is naturally gluten-free. Though I am allergic to oranges, my guests enjoy mimosa for Christmas breakfast.

So, I added a a splash of whipping cream to the blend and everyone loved it. What a perfect addition to any mimosa recipe! It created a frothy, creamy head. That particular guest ended up adding a bit of sugar to her glass, though. Later, I found a recipe online that did include sugar. Below is the recipe I made. Want to really wow your guests?

Gluten Free Christmas Cookies Using Pan Mold

Homemade Gluten Free Shortbread Christmas Cookies

I used my gluten-free shortbread cookie recipe for these gluten free Christmas cookies. I used a cookie form pan that I purchased at my local grocery store, Von’s. They are very simple to make and the icing contains almond extract versus vanilla extract which gives the cookie icing, also gluten-free, more of a whiter color and compliments the almond flour, as well.  I chose not to use colored icing, as I was going for a classy look. I hope you enjoy this gluten free Christmas cookies recipe, as well as the holidays! Continue reading “Gluten Free Christmas Cookies Using Pan Mold”
