    Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies {The Best!}

    What is the best way to judge the success of a gluten-free recipe? If no one can even tell it’s gluten-free. These cookies, no one knew. That is just how insanely delicious these are! I’ve tried several gluten free chocolate chip cookies recipes on the look out for the best, and these are hands down THE BEST! Six picky eaters (my two kids, my nieces and nephew, and my husband) all requested two and finished them off in no time. No idea. Yes, I call that success :). The other gluten-free chocolate chip cookie recipes I tried left me wanting more. Simply put, I wanted a gluten-free cookie that tasted just like a gluten filled chocolate chip cookie.

    Caramel Apple Cookies

    A soft, deliciously spiced cookie that tastes just like a caramel apple? Yes please! If you like caramel apples then you will love these cookies!

    Chocolate Frosted Peanut Butter Bars

    I can never get enough of these peanut butter bars! Literally. I made them yesterday and it’s one of those things where I kept going back and cutting off a thin slice, then another, then another and then I woke up for breakfast at it was the first thing I just had to have a taste of. In other words these are one of the most dangerous desserts you’ll ever make! These are one of my favorite childhood treats. My mom and everyone else I know always made them. They are perfect for parties because they make a full cookie sheet, and adults and children alike absolutely love them. I mean, who doesn’t love the chocolate and peanut butter combo, and who doesn’t love cookie bars and frosting? Be careful not to over-bake these or the edges will be dry. Mine were just getting there because I…
