I lived in Phoenix for a summer once.

Yeah, not the smartest thing in the world to move to a hot desert, just for the summer months. I realize that.

I ended up only being there for a summer. But while I was there, I realized that it just would never feel like winter if you didn’t have the snow.

I’ve been in Utah now for quite a few years, and while I do love an occasional snow storm, most of the time you’ll hear me cursing the snow.

You just can’t win with me, can you? 😉

But in all seriousness, while I do hate driving in the snow, there is nothing like sitting cozy in the house, snuggled in a blanket, watching the snow fall outside. And there certainly is nothing more magical than a white Christmas.

So in honor of the snow, today I bring you snowball cookies. Lemon snowball cookies. Gluten free lemon snowball cookies.

Yeah – I bet I threw you for a loop on that last one, right?

Well, I have actually had quite a few requests from readers for gluten-free recipes. And while my life is certainly gluten filled, when the folks at Arrowhead Mills came to me, asking if I’d like to come up with a cookie recipe using one of their gluten free products, I decided I was up for the challenge.

Let’s just say that I’m not versed in this whole gluten-free baking thing. While doing some research before I started, I came across so much information that my head started to spin. But I wanted to keep things simple. Since I don’t bake gluten free, I don’t have have a lot of the different products on hand. I figured the easiest thing to do would be to use a baking mix that had all of the specialty products in one. And since I wanted to honor winter and the snow, I knew that snowball cookies were the way to go. Lemons are winter fruits, and all of us need something to brighten up dreary winter days, so of course I had to incorporate lemon.

After some trial and error, (boy, do I respect all of you that bake gluten free!!) I came up with the perfect gluten free snowball cookie. They are delicate and light and melt in your mouth. The lemon flavor is subtle, but it brings the perfect addition to these cookies!!

And whether you are a gluten-freer or gluten-fuller, Arrowhead Mills has a large selection of products – everything from beans, grains and seeds to a whole line of gluten free products. Their products are organic, non gmo, and locally sourced, so you can feel good about what you are putting in your body.

    These look like the most perfect, soft cookie ever!!!! I can’t stand hot weather. I don’t like the feeling of being sticky and uncomfortable. I would much rather live in a cold place or have colder weather. Oregon is pretty perfect…except for the rain and the clouds, which is like all of the time.

    Hi Deborah! I just wanted to let you know that I’m featuring this amazing recipe in my post 102 Gluten Free Cookie Recipies. I’m also pinning it to my Gluten Free Cookie Madness Board. 🙂

    I made these last week, and while they were quite tasty, the moment I tried biting into one, the cookie crumbled into tons of crumbs, and they were a bit dry. I’d like to try them again, but don’t know what to change to make them hold together more and be a bit more moist. Any suggestions?

    • Deborah says:

      I wish I were more familiar with gluten free baking! These are definitely sandy, but they shouldn’t completely crumble. I would maybe try to add another egg yolk to see if that would help.

    Thanks! I’ll give that a try.
