Is Gluten Free Christmas Baking Possible?

We are in or near what some call "gluten free baking week" and Christmas is in a matter of days.

Is it possible to have a gluten-free Christmas? I think so. There are so many gluten free recipe books available as well as prepared  gluten free flours, snacks and more, that it is much easier to go gluten free than it used to be.

So in this week of gluten free baking, know that you have many options available to you. In our home, we enjoy traditional Scotch shortbread, which is basically flour, sugar and butter....here are the ingredients for a gluten-free variation to the recipe, plus a link to the recipe at celiac.com.
