  1. I made these cookies for a New Years Eve party and they were a HIT! They were super easy to make. I used gluten free flour, so they took slightly longer to bake in the oven, but the flavor was great. The cookie itself was delicious, and the glaze added a very nice touch. Highly recommend!

    1. Thank you so much for your comment Kim. I’m so glad that you made this recipe and that it was a hit. Thank you for sharing your experience about making the cookies with gluten free flour. Going forward I’ll try recipes with gluten free flour so I can tell readers what the difference would be if they made the recipe with gluten free flour vs regular flour.
