chocolate chip... gf & vegan...could it really be good?

There has been quite a bit of experimenting in the baking department of our kitchen these days. I have to be honest; I think this might very well be the best tasting Chocolate Chip Cookie I’ve ever had. I’m soft bake kind of girl, so if that’s not you… well you probably won’t enjoy it half as much as I did. So sit outside, enjoy the fall air, bite into one of these cookies, and it will make you raise your glass of cold milk!
