I’ve been thinking about these cookies for two years now. I guess it’s true: Time really does fly. It was two holidays ago that I hosted a potluck party and asked friends—and friends of friends—to bring something gluten-free and dairy-free. I made sure to taste everything. One bite into these delicate, laced cookies and I knew I needed the recipe.
Some months later it arrived in my email inbox and then, like many emails do, it just sat there. It wasn’t until last week, that I remembered I even had it. I read it over and made some flavor tweaks. Mainly, I added one of my new favorite ingredients—cocoa nibs—which I knew would bring out the orange tones from the creamy filling. These are, simply put, just heavenly.
