It’s my favorite time of the year! Despite the cold and the snow we get here in Ohio, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Christmas. I mean, God knows that I love Christmas so much that two years ago he blessed me with my son, born on Christmas Eve. I got to play Christmas music my entire labor and delivery and it was miraculous! Not quite to the same level of miracles, but these White Chocolate Cherry Macadamia Cookies are also pretty miraculous.
These cookies are amazing for numerous reasons:
☆ they’re freaking delicious. Period.
☆ they only take 20 minutes to make- heck to the yeah!
☆ they are crunchy on the outside, gooey on the inside… mmm.. get in ma belly!
☆ they are gluten-free and vegan, but I swear you’d never know it.
☆ they make a great gift idea, either pre-baked or packaged in a decorated mason jar. Your gluten-free, vegan friends will LOVE them and really appreicate you thinking of them at your next hoilday party.
Also- I’ve been on a hunt for vegan white chocolate. It’s incredibly hard to find a decent one here in the states… but I am happy to report that I found a great substitute and am so excited to be able to create recipes with it (and ok, you caught me… munch on it by itself).
These White Chocolate Cherry Macadamia Cookies are super simple to make- like we’re talking batter to belly in just 20 minutes! I adapted them from my friend Tamsin over at Cupful of Kale. You totally need to check out her blog, she’s insanely talented.
I had the pleasure of being included in a virtual cookie party on Instagram, I just had to bring these babies! Check out what cookies my other blogger friends brought! (note: not all gluten-free, vegan)
