Gluten Free Brownie Cookies


Gluten Free Brownie Cookies
Gluten Free Chocolate Brownie Cookies - these delicious cookies are so easy to make, perfect for the Christmas Holidays or to give as edible gifts! by BirdsParty;com @birdsparty #cookies #brownies #browniecookies #christmasbaking #christmascookies #chocolate #recipes #glutenfree

Christmas is when I bake the most. Every weekend, it's a new cookie recipe I like to try. And these days, I find myself reaching for my gluten free brownie cookies over and over again! 

These brownie cookies are fudgy in the center and slightly crisp on the edges. They pack a huge chocolate flavor and have that umami note that make it my (and my family's) favorite cookies EVER!

I love brownies. And cookies. So the idea of combining both brownies AND cookies into an easy-to-make recipe, is for me, the embodiment of Holiday baking 😉

Stained Glass Cookies Recipe with Caramel

Stained Glass Cookies Recipe with Caramel

I recently saw a recipe for stained glass cookies made with hard candy or boiled sweets. They looked so pretty, but because I'm not a huge fan of those candies, I decided to make my own stained glass Christmas cookies using hard caramels instead.  I chose regular-flavor hard caramels, as well as coffee and lemon flavored ones for a more "grown-up" twist on this recipe. The result is a less transparent cookie for the opaque caramel, but that tastes infinitely better in my opinion! 😉

Fall rhymes with pies and tarts, am I right? All that wonderful, seasonal produce is just begging to be included in the most comforting recipes.

Halloween Mantel DIY Modern Decor

Halloween Mantel DIY Modern Decor

This year, Halloween is a little more demure at ours. So, I opted for creating a few decorations that would reflect a "calmer" and more cozy vibe with neutral colors and a more paired-down style. To be honest, I much rather prefer this black and white, clean, modern monochrome vibe than anything too loud anyways!  Not to mention that, (apart from the spider webs) this décor can be re-purposed for the November and Fall months too!
