Add these Frosted Cookie Triangles to your list of holiday cookies, easy to make gluten-free too!
These Frosted Cookie Triangles are easy to make gluten-free and are made with the Gluten-Free Simple Cookie Dough. This ONE dough can make multiple types of cookies such as these Cranberry Pistachio Cookies.
I’ll be sharing the final one later this week, so be sure to stay tuned!
Making gluten-free cookies is as easy as swapping out the flour. To make cookies gluten-free, most of the time all you need to do is make sure to use gluten-free all-purpose flour. I almost always use Better Batter, but any 1:1 gluten-free flour will do.
What do you need for Frosted Cookie Triangles?
- Simple Cookie Dough
- Chocolate Chips
- Mixed Nuts
- Square Baking Pan
Tips for Making Frosted Cookie Triangles:
Frosted Cookie Triangles are best made in a deep square baking pan, similar to the one linked above. This way the cookies come out thick and are easy to cut into triangles.
It’s very important to let the cookies harden before cutting into triangles, once the chocolate is spread over the entire pan of cookies, add the chopped nuts and then let it fully harden.
This just takes about 15 minutes, then you can cut them into triangles.
These are a fun addition to holiday cookies with a little bit different shape than the traditional cookies.
Variations of Frosted Cookie Triangles:
If you prefer to use something other than nuts, these are wonderful with chopped candy canes on top too. It makes them Peppermint Mocha Cookies, which are delicious too.
They can also be topped with sprinkles instead of nuts too, there are a variety of toppings you can add to the chocolate from caramel to sprinkles…get creative!
Now, are you ready for some cookies? It’s time to start planning all of your holiday baking and these holiday cookies should be on your list!
