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!).

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 dairy free cookie bark/brittle, 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!

  1. Yum! I swear I can almost taste this from your photos… i love a cookie with a good crunch and crumble! I REALLY can’t wait to try this… !

  2. Is there something I could use instead of the margarine that would make this dairy free as well? Would coconut oil work? This sounds wonderful and I can’t wait to make it!!

  3. This sounds so delicious Sarah.. Cant’ wait to try it. Such amazing flavors of cinnamon and nutmeg – can almost smell it.
