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!
