These buttery, melt in your mouth Gluten Free Shortbread Cookies with Cinnamon & Clementine are the perfect Christmas cookies. They’re so easy to make with just a few ingredients, and you can decorate them however you like (or even not at all!). The flavours are totally divine with hints of caramel, and the festive holiday flavours of cinnamon and clementine. Use round cookie cutters or other fun shapes and you can make these Gluten Free Shortbread Cookies all year round!
These Gluten Free Shortbread Cookies with Cinnamon & Clementine might just be my new favourite Christmas cookies (although they have real tough competition with my Gluten Free Eggnog Cookies in the running). The idea for these Gluten Free Shortbread Cookies was actually born from another idea. I had these grand plans to make a Christmassy layer cake with indulgent frostings and dripping boozy sauces, and I was going to decorate it with festive flavoured Gluten Free Shortbread Cookies. Well, the cake was a total bust – it definitely has potential once I get the recipe right, but unfortunately I don’t have any time left to get that done before Santa arrives, so it will have to wait until next year. Even though I had no cake to decorate, I decided to make the Shortbread Cookies anyway, and I’m so glad I did!
Thick and chewy Gluten Free Eggnog Cookies are the ultimate Christmas Cookie. They’re made with nutmeg and a healthy dose of bourbon so they’re full of holiday cheer, and are the perfect way to enjoy all the yumminess of eggnog during the festive season but in cookie form. They’re so simple to make, and are perfect for a cookie exchange and gifting!

Eggnog? Do you love it or does it kind of ick you out? Eggnog isn’t something that ever caught on much here in the UK, but the idea of it and the flavours really intrigued me. Eggs, cream, nutmeg and booze – sounds pretty damn delicious to me! So when Starbucks starting doing the eggnog latte over here I had to try it, and I thought it was delicious! I was firmly on the eggnog train. But I know it grosses some people out, especially those who have never tried it, I think it’s the idea of drinking raw eggs (even though it really is pretty safe to do so these days). But as someone who loves an egg white in her cocktails, that doesn’t put me off at all! But for those of you who love the flavours that are in eggnog but don’t want to drink it, I made you these Gluten Free Eggnog Cookies! Yep – just for you!

Treacle tart is a tried and true staple dessert here in the UK, and one of my favourites. It’s simplicity makes it all that much more appealing in my eyes, sometimes all you need is a few ingredients to make a truly spectacular dessert to serve friends and family. My Gluten Free Treacle Tart recipe is no exception, making it gluten free doesn’t make it any more difficult or time consuming, it’s just as easy and tasty, you’d never know it was gluten free!

Ah, autumn! That transitional season where the leaves change, the clocks go back, warm weather becomes a thing of distant memories, and pumpkin spice dominates the entire world! Here in London this week it feels like we skipped autumn altogether and went straight to winter, it’s friggin’ freezing! But with how up and down the weather has been here lately, I’m holding out hope it will warm up again for a while before we’re fully submerged into winter. Our clocks went back over a week ago, so I’m mostly used to leaving for work in the dark and getting home in the dark now, but I am not used to this freezing temperatures, I need to go glove shopping stat! Look at me talking about the weather, how boringly British of me! Let’s talk about this Gluten Free Apple Upside Down Cake instead!

September is one of my favourite months, it’s where summer meets autumn and the leaves start turning. And, of course, it’s when everything pumpkin spice starts appearing. I LOVE all things pumpkin spice, because I love fall spices – they’re so warm and inviting, comforting even. But, this post isn’t about the wonderful spices of autumn – it’s about the wonderful produce that comes along with September. My favourite being blackberries!
