Today was a great day. My husband has a job and we are so excited about the opportunity it will bring our family. Since I will be spending two weeks alone with the kids while he is off at various training conferences, Saturday became baking day.
These thin mints are gluten free and naturally sweetened. But you wouldn’t know it–at all. If you want to jazz them up, you can sprinkle a little bit of ancho chili powder and sea salt on top. It makes it a little bit fancier looking and helps enhance the flavor of the chocolate. If you like a little bit of heat to your chocolate, it provides a very light hint of it. These cookies WILL not disappoint. They are incredible and are one of my favorite naturally sweetened desserts.
For now, I’m off to take a ski lesson with the kids and husband. I’ve only been snowboarding before (my thought was, one board is easier than two ski’s. See: how my brain works above). I have two goals. To make it back alive and learn to fall gracefully. Last time I went my tailbone and I had a major disagreement.
This recipe was for the Scharffen Berger contest entry. I was not compensated in any way for my entry.
