These cookies are probably the best thing I’ve ever created. Honest. The first time I made them, (for watching the Santa Clause Parade of course!) they were gone by the end of the day. This recipe makes roughly 2-3 dozen. The second time I made them  I wanted to take them to work. They didn’t make it out my door. I eventually got a batch to work (two actually!), and ended up having a co-worker who even paid me to make an entire batch for her. They’re actually pretty simple to make and don’t take too much time either.

Ingredients
  1. 2 1/4 Cups gluten-free all purpose flour
  2. 1 Tsp baking powder
  3. 1 Tsp baking soda
  4. 1/2 Tsp xanthan gum
  5. 3/4 Cup butter, softened
  6. 1 Cup sugar
  7. 2 Large eggs
  8. 2 Tsp vanilla extract
  9. 2-3 Tsp peppermint extract
  10. 2 Cups chocolate and white chocolate chips
  11. 4-6 Large candy canes, crushed
Instructions
  1. Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Add the butter and eggs, mix again. It's easier to mix the dough with your hands at this point.
  3. Add vanilla and peppermint extract, mix it really well using your hands. The dough is going to be thick and hard to work with.
  4. Add the crushed candy canes and chocolate chips and mix together one final time.
  5. Create small dough balls, roughly around one inch and slightly flatten them with a spoon.
  6. Place them on a baking sheet, about 1-2 inches apart, lined with either parchment paper or tin foil (shiny side down, lightly greased)
  7. Bake for 9-12 minutes at 375F.
