Crisp and buttery tasting, these gluten-free pressed cookies are going to be a staple for so many of your holidays – make fun shapes for children’s parties, flower shapes for bridal showers, wreaths, and trees for Christmas or hearts for Valentine’s Day! They also make wonderful wedding favors.
I won’t lie, these do take more time than I usually spend on making cookies – but they are so fun and taste yummy! They are great to make in a single shape (like these hearts) and tuck into containers and combined with quick drop cookies to add a pop of color! There are so many fun ways to celebrate using these gluten-free pressed cookies.
They are perfect for wedding and shower favors.
