Double Chocolate Gluten-Free Cookies

Over Thanksgiving I was invited to a friend’s house and asked to bring a chocolate dessert. Since I knew there would be a number of other desserts and it’s fun to sample multiple things on these special occasions, I thought some cookies would be just the thing. I also knew that there were a number of people who are gluten-free, so used gluten-free flour instead of regular flour, which worked well for these. The cookies were delicious and melted in your mouth. They were also a bit delicate, so I may try adding two eggs, especially if they are small eggs, next time.

The below recipe made 18 cookies. You can easily double it.
