Tastiest - Gluten-Free Thin Mint Eggs
YUM! We love Thin Mints at Glutenista HQ so we decided to make some egg-shaped gluten-free thin mints in honor of easter. To make, simply follow our fabulous gluten-free thin mint recipe and in place of cutting them in circles, cut them with an egg shaped cookie cutter. Such a yummy gluten-free treat! Decorate as your heart desires! Would make for a very cute place setting.
Stained Glass Easter Jello Eggs
