When you were little can you remember the first cookie you ever ate? Probably not…
You can probably remember your favourite childhood cookie. 🙂
For me it was definitely the Chocolate Chip Cookie!
With all the other cookies, squares, pies, and cakes, that cookie is the one that sticks in my mind.
Did you think that when you went gluten free that you wouldn’t be able to have them anymore? I had a very nice email from a lady asking if I would make a gluten free and dairy free chocolate chip cookie recipe…So here they are 🙂
And who doesn’t like them??
