GLUTEN-FREE OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHUNK COOKIES
The versatility of these cookies is endless. White or milk chocolate, or dried apricots or currants make delicious substitutions for the dark chocolate. Make sure you use just a level tablespoonful of dough for each cookie; that guarantees the not-too-thin, chewy texture that will have you reaching for seconds.
