The festive season is all about spreading joy, and what better way to do that than by sharing some homemade cookies? But if you or your loved ones have dietary restrictions, the quest for the perfect Christmas cookie recipe can be daunting.

Last year, I got asked by quite a few of my readers if I had any vegan and gluten-free Christmas cookies. And while I do have a couple of gluten-free recipes that turned out nice, baking with gluten-free flour is definitely not a strong point of mine.

So to save any kitchen failures this Christmas, I teamed up with some other food bloggers to share only the BEST vegan and gluten-free Christmas cookie recipes. Baking without eggs, dairy or wheat may seem like a tricky task but these recipes prove that it’s entirely possible.
