Soft Gluten-Free Valentine’s Day Cookies

Sometimes I send the girls photos of the cookies I want them to make for me and sometimes they take the bait… I told them I would go to Walgreens and buy some M&Ms if the spirit moved them to make a fun treat for our afternoon of football watching. They jumped all over the chance to make cookies and not do homework or clean their room. Jump to Recipe

Super Soft GF Valentine’s Day Cookies!
Julia and Noelle made these AMAZING gluten-free Valentine’s Day cookies today with no help from me. Amazing. Soft. Warm. Gooey. Delicious. We were stress eating them while watching the Tampa Bay/Packers game. And yes, to everyone wondering, yes, we still are rooting for Tom Brady! Ten Superbowls??? That’s so crazy. He really is the GOAT.

I am not sure that the girls have any tricks to share with you for these cookies. They were really straightforward and absolutely DELICIOUS!!! Noelle only eats soft cookies or cookie dough. Seriously. If the cookie gets too hard, she refuses to eat it. More for the rest of us, right? She gave total thumbs up to these cookies. They really did stay soft!
