Gluten Free Brownie Fudge Cookies
I have mastered the art of gluten free cookie baking. Seriously though, these cookies look and taste just look ones containing flour. I am very proud.
Summer seems to be flying by. It seems like I just finished school, but it's already been two months, and I have recently begun taking summer classes. For some reason I always feel inclined to do school over the summer. I guess I get too bored doing nothing, but I am really enjoying my marine biology class. I have probably mentioned this before, but I am slightly obsessed with science, specifically biology. I find it very fascinating, especially being able to dissect organisms, even though it can be a little gross sometimes.
Despite having four intensive classes this summer, I have made plenty of time to cook. I do not post on here as often as I would like, but I do cook frequently, since I am the only one in my family who cannot eat gluten and have to cook a lot of my own meals.
Although it can be a little depressing that I may never eat Papa Johns pizza again, or an enormous hamburger from Five Guys, it is kind of nice to be gluten free. I can bake cookies, and just by mentioning the words, "gluten free," most of my family won't even bother to try the food, leaving more from me. Yay! :D
So if you really like brownies, you should seriously try this recipe. I pretty much just dumped a bunch of ingredients together in a bowl, and hoped it would work itself out. It did. And I have created a marvelous recipe that tastes like pure happiness, but mostly like brownies.
