GIVEAWAY: Chocolate Mint Snow-Top Gluten-Free Cookies

This week my favorite holiday cookie recipe, Chocolate Mint Snow-Top Gluten-Free Cookies, was featured as part of Pamela’s Products 12 Days of Gluten-Free Cookies.

When Pamela’s Products approached me with the idea of including a recipe, I thought a lot about what recipe to share. I realized my family has a unique holiday cookie tradition. It’s just not the holidays in our house without Chocolate Mint Snow-Top cookies.

Sorry sugar cookies.

My mom found this recipe in a magazine years ago, and we’ve been baking these cookies ever since.

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour (Pamela’s All-Purpose Flour Artisan Blend)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups crushed Andes mints
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • confectioner’s sugar
Steps

1.  In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
