Gluten Free Cookies: Christmas Fig

I wish I had a fun story about these cookies. But I think the best thing about them (other than their taste – if your a fig fan these are a MUST) is that they are a clear indication that I’m starting to “get” this whole gluten free baking thing. I was really just looking […]

I know what you are thinking, “She barely posts for months and then two cookie recipes in one week?!” Or maybe that’s just what I’m thinking.

Cookies: Coconut Macaroons

The very first Passover Seder I ever went to was a somewhat hastily thrown together potluck hosted my my friend Jessica in college. I remember that we were all sitting together in a large circle on the floor of one of the houses one of our friends was living in off campus that semester. I […]

I had wanted to call these Faux-reos but didn’t because they if I billed them as homemade Oreos I was afraid you all would take me at my word and they aren’t really the same. These cookies are less cloyingly sweet and have a darker richer chocolate taste. But the name’s darn clever, isn’t it?
