Looking for a unique cookie to serve your guests this holiday? Try making some Gluten-Free Spiced Cookie Brittle! These crunchy cookies remind me of toffee and are gluten-free and vegan, and would make a great allergy-friendly gift!
Hey friends, time for another cookie recipe! If you couldn’t tell by the name of my blog, cookies are one of my absolute favorite things to bake. They’re small, portable, and you can easily make the recipe bigger or smaller to match the crowd.
Plus, cookies are harder to mess up than something like cake or homemade candy, and they make amazing holiday gifts. Cookies for the win!
Our small band of food bloggers is teaming up again for our second collaborative post that’s all about Christmas Cookies (our last one was fall cupcakes!). If you’re on the lookout for some new cookie recipes for Christmas, then here are some new recipes to try!

For my part of the collaboration, I decided to make some cookie brittle. I was reading through the holiday Food Network Magazine and was looking for some fun recipe ideas, when I saw a recipe for Spiced Cookie Bark from Land ‘O Lakes butter.
I’ve seen cookie brittle at the store before but I’ve never had it, so I was intrigued! I decided that’s what I wanted to make, and I created a gluten-free and vegan version, and I also reduced the sugar in it to make it a bit healthier.
This Gluten-Free Spiced Cookie Brittle is like a spiced sugar cookie that is crunchy and broken up into bits, which reminds me a lot of the English toffee we used to make around the holidays. Until I get that allergy-friendly toffee recipe figured out, these cookies will do!
