Fill Your Gluten-Free Christmas Cookie Plate

Last year, I didn't eat any of my Christmas cookies because I used the Martha Stewart recipe for sugar cookies that I always use, with loads of butter, sugar and gluten-laden flour. I didn't want to alter the recipe because, like many of Martha's creations, it is perfect, and one of the many reasons I have forgiven her for any of the things for which she was sent to prison. I'm sure she's learned her lesson, and she probably made her prison roomies some damn good cookies.
