Egg-Free Christmas Cookies

When you have a child with food allergies, any celebration calls for extra preparation. The odds that a party will include goodies he or she can eat are extremely slim. Christmas, however, proves to be an additional challenge.

It just doesn’t feel like Christmas without sugar-sprinkled cookies shaped like Christmas trees and reindeer, right? But it can be a challenge to find a cut-out cookie recipe that works well without eggs. That’s why I was thrilled to stumble onto this egg-, nut-, and soy-free cookie recipe. It has been our go-to Christmas cookie recipe ever since.



Sugar and Spice Cookies

¾ cup butter
½ cup brown sugar
1 2/3 cups flour
2 tsp ginger
2 tsp cinnamon
Grated orange rind (optional)

Cream sugar and butter together until creamy

Add flour, ginger, cinnamon, and orange rind. Mix well.

Shape dough into a ball. Wrap in a plastic bag and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Sprinkle some flour on the table. Cut ball in half and roll out dough
to ¼ inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutters and place on cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes.

Allow to cool completely then decorate (see icing recipe below).

3 tbsp powdered sugar
3 tsp water or milk

Mix well.

  1. My boy is highly allergic to eggs, so I really appreciate this recipe and will share it. It look super easy too, which I love! And I have been the mom with the kiddo who can’t eat anything. I always take him a lunch to potlucks. Thanks! Stopping by from Family Fun Friday!
