I had an iron infusion this morning that totally wiped me out, so I spent the morning napping. When I got some energy back this afternoon, first I vacuumed the living room - always an energizing mood-booster for me! Then I decided to get my butt into the kitchen and test one of the many recipes I've been cataloging in my new favorite thing: my Emily-safe Recipes Binder (for lack of a better title?). I have been surfing the blog scene for a few months now, printing out GFCF, egg-free, soy-free recipes to try, and filing them by type of dish. I even made my own cutesy binder tabs out of polka-dot scrapbooking paper. I love this new binder. It's the simplest thing, but it brings me great joy; I know when I pull it off the shelf that I will be able to make and enjoy any recipe in there. Awesome feeling!
Ooh, the timer is beeping! I'll comment on the cookie result later. Happy Tuesday evening to all!
Okay, here are the cookies! Forgive my very amateur photography skills - comments welcome :)

Raves: Overall, a great recipe with delicious flavor. The cookies taste like they have BUTTER! I don't think anyone would be able to tell that these are GF, vegan, and only sweetened with 1/8 tsp stevia powder and 1/2 cup maple syrup! The flavor and smell far outweighs the crumbly-ness flaw. If I had to choose between a dry-ish cookie and a too-moist cookie, I'd pick the drier one. I dislike having cookies that can't even be covered in a container because they'll practically melt - they get too soft! I can tell these cookies are going to do well sitting on the counter in a covered container. I'll definitely make them again, and try to resolve the shortening issue.
For just an hour's work, I have over 30 cute little cookies to enjoy and share this week. I'm calling this a success! :)
