Festive Fruit Cookies – Gluten Free

These Festive Fruit Cookies will be a great gluten free addition to your Holiday dessert tray.

They are tasty little bites that were a tradition at my family Christmas but gluten intolerance prevented me from continuing to enjoy them.

Before beginning to prepare the batter I put 2 cups of raisins in a glass measuing cup and poured 1 cup of boiling water over them.

I let the raisins soak in the boiling water for 5 minutes before draining them.

To start the batter I dumped some shortening and granulated sugar into a large mixing bowl.

Using an electric hand mixer I creamed them together.

Next I added in the eggs and vanilla.

I beat in the eggs and vanilla with the electric hand mixer until the batter was creamy.

Next I dumped in the drained raisins that I had soaked in the boiling water.  There was still some liquid mixed in and that is okay.

I stirred them in with a wooden spoon.

The addition of the dry ingredients included Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour, salt, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg and cloves.

Using the wooden spoon I stirred until all the ingredients were combined.

To make these cookies festive for the Holidays I added in a cup of chopped mixed fruit.

I stirred the mixed fruit into the cookie batter using the wooden spoon again.

Now the batter was ready to scoop out onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

I baked them in a 375F oven for 8-10 minutes or until they were golden brown.

After removing them from the oven I allowed them to cool slightly on the pan before removing them to a cooling rack.

These Festive Fruit Cookies are tasty little bites that will be a great gluten free addition to your Holiday dessert tray.
