When I started writing this post I realized that i had been making the original recipe of this cookie (with gluten) for 20 years- yikes!
These cookies have been one of everyone’s favorites that has tried them over the years. I have made them almost every holiday season, either in the original form or gluten free.
Some recipes need tweaking when you convert them from “normal” to gluten free. I got lucky with this one because I don’t think I changed anything except for the kind of flour. Some cookies and breads need the addition of more liquid or a little more egg or some xanthan gum to retain the original texture and “chew”.
This is one of the cookies that I included in the holiday gift baskets that I made for my husband’s top clients last year.
I went ahead and made all of the cookies with my gluten free flour since that’s what I had. It also gave me an excuse to convert a couple more cookie recipes to gluten free!
