bob’s red mill asks: what holiday cookie are you?

which holiday cookie are you? well, bob’s red mill will help you figure that out with this silly and speedy little quiz that can be found at their web site :

i discovered i’m a peppermint hot chocolate cookie, which is quite telling, since i just received some great crushed peppermint from king arthur flour and wasn’t sure what i was going to use it for! seems i’ve found the perfect recipe for it! (and p.s., they happen to be gluten-free, so bonus points for sharing with gf friends!)
