Cinnamon roll cookies, marzipan cookies, star-shaped cookies, gingerbread cookies, chocolate crinkle cookies… Cookies in the kitchen, cookies for lunch (and dinner)… I even dream about cookies.

These gluten free chocolate chip cookies are deliciously soft, buttery and sweet, with bursts of chocolate in every mouthful. The recipe is simple and easy to follow, with guaranteed mouthwatering results.

Bird's-eye view of gluten free chocolate chip cookies arranged in a pretty heap on a light bluish grey background, with squares of parchment paper underneath the bottom cookies.

But even when nothing works and you’re fed up with just about everything… we still have leaves changing colour and falling down and making that crunch swoosh crunch swish sound when you wade through piles of them.

It’s officially scarf-wearing season. And the kicking-piles-of-leaves season. And the slight-chill-in-the-morning season. I love fall. I love the crisp air, the golden leaves, the squirrels frantically hiding hazelnuts in the ground (only to dig them up 5 minutes later… and then hide them again, 2 inches away)… and yes, the scarves.
