The gluten-free Chocolate Crinkle Cookie recipe is a must-have holiday recipe. Whether you are looking for a holiday cookie, a hostess gift, or just that freshly baked sweet treat, this classic chocolate crinkle cookie is always a big hit.

This melt in your mouth crinkle cookie is probably one of the easiest gluten-free cookie recipes. These cookies are made in a jiffy with only a few ingredients, a few minutes of prep time, and a short chill time.

This recipe is adapted from the classic chocolate crinkle cookie recipe, but I have substituted maple syrup for sugar and made it without gluten.

These holiday cookies are fudgy, not too sweet and lightly coated with powdered sugar. And, they taste just the way you remember them.

The best part about this gluten-free cookie recipe, you probably already have all the ingredients in your pantry.

A holiday dessert platter wouldn’t be complete without crinkle cookies. Christmas is all about traditions, fond memories, delicious food and family get togethers.

brief history of crinkle cookie,

Did you know that a crinkle cookie is an American cookie? The famous cookie is an original Betty Crocker recipe. The flavours of this traditional cookie vary, but the chocolate one is a holiday classic. 

I highly recommend eating them when they are slightly cooled but still warm. There is nothing more satisfying than a warm chocolate crinkle cookie melting in your mouth. Especially with a cup of hot chocolate and marshmallows. YUM! Need more holiday cookie recipes? Check out our popular gluten-free chai spiced thumbprint cookie or grain-free gingerbread cookie
