Yay! Chocolate Chip Cookies…Gluten Free
I had a sweet tooth really badly the other day, and thought I would try some gluten free baking. Well the cookies didn’t turn out very well, they were pretty much like hockey pucks. So last night I was determined to make them better, and they were. It was a success, to the point I did a happy dance in my kitchen.
