Loved them! With chocolate inside and out how can a person go wrong? The recipe went together well. The cookies are easy to shape and they don't spread that much making them one of my favorite gluten free cookies. I liked that the ingredients were listed with gram alternatives as I have found that weighing gluten free flours is the way to go. A brown rice flour blend was used but other than that the recipe was followed as written. Made for Aussie Swap.
