Geof and I are living with friends here in Salt Lake City and one of them, Rob, has recently adopted a gluten-free diet. At first blush I thought that sounded terrible (no beer?!). But, it's actually been a lot of fun participating in ensuring he is following the rules, and enjoying a relatively gluten-free diet ourselves (FYI, there is gluten free beer :)). You wouldn't believe how much stuff has gluten in it! Wow! It became almost instantly second nature to check the labels of everything.
In any event, I had the urge to bake this week, and in the interest of ensuring all members of the household could enjoy the fruits of my labor, I set out to find a decent gluten-free cookie recipe.
Ask and ye shall receive!
The cookies came out great and are so delicious! They won rave reviews and glowing praise. I will definitely be making these again. You would never guess there was zero gluten...no flour, no oil. Just pure awesome.
I adapted this recipe from Make It Naked, a great little blog.
