Recipe Comments & Reviews

No one will know these are gluten free! For a more crackled appearance roll them in Powdered Sugar. Super easy too
What a wonderful recipe!! Easy to make and absolutely delicious! These cookies are like little brownies. I shared with my co-workers that are not gluten free and they loved them!
These are delicious!!
These turned out exactly as pictured and delicious! 2nd year making them!
Love these! They are awesome in the summer. Put a roasted marshmellow in between two cookies. Heavenly!!
Had to add extra flour was way to soft a dough even refrigerated. Made my own mix of flour as directed. Even with the additional flours they flattened out and didn't crackle.
