Chocolate Chip Cookie Photos

These are momentous.  Not just because they turn out great, and much better since I started using corn free xanthan gum instead of guar gum (see a great comparison here), but because it was my first taste of chocolate since a year ago when I stopped eating chocolate in case it was contributing to R’s colic.  It never seemed worth reintroducing, which is sacrilegious but when you are thinking of your baby’s happiness you, too, can give up chocolate.

Oh, that first bite was so good.  These are vegan, wheat free, oat free, nut free, etc. etc. and just marvelous.  From my favorite cookbook: the Allergen-Free Baker’s Handbook by Cybele Pascal (amazon affiliate link).
