Recipe Comments and Reviews


I made this recipe but substituted oat flour for the gluten-free blend. (We are wheat-free not gluten-free.) I also added a teaspoon of xanthum gum. I had to substitute alternative butter for the butter because of dairy allergies. They were excellent! I made these and a batch of the wheat ones and brought them to a Christmas party and also Christmas eve. No one could tell the difference. These will be added to our yearly Christmas party menu!
