Christmas Chai Snow Crescent Cookies (Eggless & Gluten-Free)

This year we made most of our Christmas cookies gluten-free. We love them because they're light and crispy, and they've been a hit amongst all our guests so far!

This season we doubled the batch, stored the dough in the freezer and baked these cookies as we needed them so they're always fresh and crispy for our guests.

If you haven't done your holiday baking as of yet, try making these Christmas Chai Snow Crescents which are easy, delicious and festive to cheer up your Christmas dessert table!
