Spicy Molasses Cookies For Santa (GF, vegan, no refined sugar)

Posted in : Uncategorized on by : apsara

For Santa this year, we made some festive cookies with a cookie press. The kids enjoyed making fun shapes- Christmas trees, snowflakes and wreath shaped ones!

These spicy cookies will be enjoyable for any time of the year, especially in Fall and winter. The essential oils take it up a notch with the aroma and flavor! I would use only Young Living essential oils, since I trust the Seed to Seal purity that they offer. If not available, use extra powdered spices.

Ingredients for the spicy cookies

Involve kids and make this a fun activity using a cookie press! I highly recommend Oxo brand of cookie press. I have had it for over 4 years and they always make excellent shapes and are easy to use and clean.
