Chocolate Peppermint Cookies (Top 8 Free)

I was recently reading my Facebook feed and came across a post shared by Jenny from Multiple Food Allergy Help for some yummy looking cookies made by Sarah Bakes Gluten Free Treats.  I knew if Jenny could make them safely for her son, I could make them for mine.  So I clicked on the link to see how they were made.  Check out the recipe here

I have to admit, when looking at a recipe, I tend to be intimidated by a long list of ingredients.  And I'm even more turned off if I don't already have all the ingredients in my fridge or pantry.  That means I have to actually go out of my way to look for a new item at the store.  And I never know which store will carry the particular item I need.  But after a little closer look, I decided these cookies would be worth the extra step.  (And it turns out, it wasn't really that bad after all.) 

The only things I did differently from the original recipe is that I used King Arthur Flour Gluten Free Multi-Purpose Flour and peppermints that are free of artificial colors rather than traditional candy canes.  They still tasted wonderful and looked just as good.  I even froze some to enjoy on New Year's Eve.  The kids can't get enough of them!
