I’ve always wanted to make sugar plums, I' don’t recall ever having them before and I have no idea if this is close to the original variety or not, but when I found this recipe I thought it was quite doable. It turns out that these remind me of one very delicious thing…Larabars!!
For now these are still fresh in the fridge, but when I package them up to give to my favorite Gluten-free friend, Kelly, I plan to dust them with snow (aka powdered sugar).
