My thoughts
This recipe was intended to be cookies; but after I baked six cookies, the result was so fluffy that these really couldn’t be called cookies. I was hoping the batter would spread more than it did; so I grabbed the muffin pan and mad some muffins. This recipe tasted like everything autumn to me and its gluten-free.
