The weather outside is getting colder, and what does this mean?  More chocolate. These cookies are perfect for just that – days that are not too hot, but not too cold.

Chocolatey, rich, deep, and slightly nutty (with an option of spice too) are a a wonderful combination for a delicious cookie.

I have tried these cookies several times, and in different ways.  I loved the taste of adding a dash of red pepper to the cookie batter, because it just boosted the chocolate flavor even more.  Also, for those who like their cookies on the softer side, try baking these cookies for around 10-12 minutes. They are made with flours that are usually handy in a gluten free kitchen.  If not, just replace the rice flours with a gluten free flour blend.

Enjoy!
