Christmas just isn't Christmas without my Mom's white cutout cookies. They were one of the first things I learned to bake together with my mom when I was a kid. As much as I try to find something new for cookies each year, I just can't do it. I have to have these. It was really hard, I must say, giving them up when I began low carbing. But then I found I didn't have to!! First I remade them here, but they were not gluten free although very very good! Tasted like the real thing. If you are not dropping the wheat, these are great! But I do have to drop the wheat as I found I was allergic to it, or sensitive to it or something. I can't have it! And I find it takes me 3 days to get over a reaction once I get it. So just not worth it! So I decided today, after searching Christmas cookie ideas, that I came back to these and had to make them gluten free. They turned out wonderful!! Not exactly what Mom used to make but pretty close and pretty dern good.

|The trick to getting them off easily is a little cornstarch and to run the spatula all the way under the cutout before lifting off carefully|
