This is my first gluten-free Christmas. I remember how sick I felt last Christmas, so I am looking forward to enjoying this one. Between now and Christmas I will try to post a variety of different baked goods & sweets, both gluten free & regular. Something for everyone!
This recipe comes from a gluten free blog that I have just recently become a fan of. It is from Hey That Tastes Good, where you can find a variety of gluten-free recipes.
Now, onto the recipe! These cookies are delicious. They have a great texture, they store wonderfully, and well, everyone will love them. Trust me. Just don’t inhale while eating a cookie that is rolled in confectioner’s sugar…it can be hazardous to your health.
