gluten-free homemade oreos

July 31, 2012

In the words of the brilliant George Costanza... I'm speechless.  I have no speech.  And I'm convinced that it's not humanly possible to eat one of these cookies whilst standing up.  

Knees shall buckle. 
Tears shall fall. 
Crumbs shall freckle thy cheeks.   

If you're feeling extra spunky and daring, go ahead and drown one of these puppies in your iced coffee.  Yeah, I said it.   Life is short, eat some oreos for breakfast.




I made big fattypants cookies, just the way I likes 'em.  This is the ideal cookie-to-cream ratio, my friends.  If you happen to disagree, certainly feel free to flatten those dough balls to your heart's content.  

Oh, and if you're looking for a more traditional, non-gluten-free-homemade-oreo... I gotcha covered there, too pal.  

How's that for a close-up?

For cookies
