Amazing Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Okay this is the best gluten free cookie recipe I have made in a while! When you read the ingredient list, you may think to yourself (huh?). I promise these Amazing Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies are amazingly good! I was hesitant too, and you should have seen my kids face when I told them what was in them!

These cookies are so simple and will melt in your mouth. Trust me on this one and let me know what you think! Have a great weekend, and here’s to awesome healthy, fabulous cookies!

Halloween Chocolate Chip Cookie Bark

Who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies? Of course, I do. I also love making candy and bark-type recipes for the holidays. I wondered, why not combine the two into something wonderful for Halloween? This Chocolate Chip Cookie Bark is fantastic. You don’t even need a mixer. It has just the basic cookie ingredients, mini chocolate chips and Reese’s Pieces. I will be making this recipe for my “Halloween Treat” cooking segment this week on Nashvillle’s top ranked talk show, NewsChannel 5 “Talk of the Town” on Thursday, October 28th along with 2 other creative Halloween treats. I will try to post the TV link when I get it. Happy Halloween week! Alison

Christmas Cookie Winner! Double Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cookies

This recipe is so easy, and so fun to make. I saw a similar recipe in the Better Homes and Gardens Magazine, and my daughter, Leigh, begged me to make some. She made the orignal recipe all by herself, and we were all impressed. Since, as a Recipe Developer, I get paid to create recipes for a living, I decided I would try to rival her with this variation. Try them for yourself and let me know what you think.
