adopt a gluten free blogger

I was lucky enough to be able to adopt Kate over at Gluten Free Gobsmack and was all set to make her egg roll recipe. Her blog is one of the first I discovered and I love her recipes. My favorite being the flourless ho-ho cake. I was so ready to make her egg rolls I started to buy the filling ingredients so imagine my surprise when the day I went to check the ingredients for the rolls only to find her newest post for XXX sugar cookies well needless to say I had to have them since i am a cookie fanatic. The only problem is that Kate said the cookies would last a week but they barely made it a day in my house and I was left craving more. These cookies were absolutely divine.
