Here are five fantastic cookies that are unintentionally gluten-free. This means that you're likely to have all of the ingredients for them at the ready in your pantry and you don't have to run out and buy a gluten-free flour blend—or make your own. They're perfect all year round, but they're especially good for the holidays; they're festive enough for a gift or a cookie exchange and they're easy enough to whip up quickly when you're short on time.
