When everyone’s favorite Orange Lantern, Larfleeze, discovers the Earth holiday of Christmas, he gets very excited. In fact, so excited that he has an entire comic book dedicated to his Christmas adventure. In the end, Larfleeze is an orange lantern, who is driven by avarice, but he learns something along the way.
Larfleeze’s gift to us is a recipe in the back of the comic book for Larfleeze Holiday Cookies. We made a batch, and they were delicious! Here’s the recipe:
