Gluten Free Pecan Cookies

Gluten free pecan cookies on this fine Thursday afternoon. Who’s excited for Project Runway tonight? Me! Ian had to go in episode one – simply not adjusting his style or vision to the challenge was clearly a mistake. Last week, though, I was sad to see Linda go. I really liked her. Okay, enough about that – time for gluten free cookies.
