I was browsing through a past issue of Martha Stewart Living and came across a dessert recipe that I thought would be easy to make gluten free. The most important ingredient was pretzels and I knew Glutino pretzels would work well.
I think it is important to remember that mainstream recipes are a great resource as long as you have some gluten-free brands you know will substitute one for one for a gluten containing ingredient. As for this dessert, these cookies were the perfect salty/sweet/chocolate/peanut combination of flavors to serve with a cup of coffee in order to continue the fun dinner party conversation.
I cut them into two bite squares so that people would try a small piece and go back for seconds. Everyone had seconds. The host and hostess of the dinner party kept some of the cookies for their kids and everyone took home a goody bag. I had left some of the misshapen squares for my kids, but they were a little miffed that I did not bring home more.
