This recipe was so good. My non gluten free husband even loved them. I added a little peppermint extract to the cookie, perfect for the holidays!

These cookies are sooo good. My children, all over 35, loved them. One took my recipe. I have decided to try them with some flavored chocolate, different kisses, and even chocolate bits. The recipe is definitly a keeper. aurora m.
