Monster Cookies – Gluten Free and Dairy Free

A friend of mine stopped by the other day with her daughter in tow. The child’s face was beaming with delight and a whole lot of crumbs stuck to her cute little round cheeked face. She was smacking her lips in pure joy.

“It is Gluten Free!” my friend exclaimed proudly as she handed over a beautiful hand written recipe card while apologizing profusely for the missing “sample” that apparently her adorable daughter had eaten on the ride. Not that I require a sample, but she was so proud of these cookies that she wanted to share.

Honestly, I was just blessed by her thoughtfulness.
