Egg-Free, Nut-Free Christmas Cookies

As you shop, decorate, plan, and cook for the holidays, there are always those FUN FINDS that you stumble across! And what do you do? TEXT YOUR BEST FRIENDS ABOUT THEM, OF COURSE! So that’s what we plan to do at Texting the Truth this month — Post about our favorite holiday FINDS! 

And here’s another one: Eggless, Nut-Free Christmas Cookies!

Chances are, if you have a large family or love to host, you’ll want and/or need to be sensitive to food allergies. In our family, we are always on the lookout for recipes that do NOT include eggs or nuts so that everyone can eat them without worry. 

Decorating Christmas cookies makes for easy entertaining when hosting parties/play dates, and proves to be an interactive treat/tradition that everyone from the youngest to oldest family members can enjoy.

Egg Free Cut Out Cookies:

*NOTE: Be sure to clean your baking space well to avoid any possible cross-contamination with surfaces that may have touched egg/nut product.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened slightly
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder (NOT baking soda)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Optional

  • 1 Tbsp Sugar for coating

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream together butter, sugar, milk, and vanilla in large bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, and stir until combined.
  5. Cover and chill dough in refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Roll out chilled dough to about 1/4″ thickness on lightly floured surface.
  6. Cut out shapes with cookie cutters. Press one side in sugar or sprinkles, if desired. Re-roll any remaining dough for additional cutouts.
  7. Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool on the pan for about 5 minutes before transferring to wire cooling rack. Cool completely before frosting.

*NOTE: Be mindful of checking your decorating ingredients for any trace of egg, peanut, or tree nut as well. Other common allergens that may want to be checked include ingredients like red dye. Happy decorating!

About Michelle Warner

The truth about me is that I love spending time with people–whether it be with moms in MOPS, students in writing camps, friends in my supper club, or family on our patio. And if you combine people and words, I am definitely in my happy place. One of my most favorite moments is sitting around a table with the people I love sharing deep conversations about life. Inviting people into our home and pulling out my fancy dishes invigorates me, though tackling the hand-wash pile in my sink does quite the opposite. (Sorry, Hubby. I’ll get to those soon!) I’m learning to enjoy the people in my life without feeling the need to prove myself or always make them happy. God continues to teach me that when I find what I need in Him rather than the perfectly-cooked chicken or the perfectly-timed word, I have a security that can’t be shaken. And that’s a good thing since my hard-working husband and I have two very determined little girls who keep us on our toes!
