There have been some dark days and teary goodbyes recently in this borough of 2.5 million. In an effort to offset the heavy boots, there have also been cookies.

Thanks to CD, these cookies will be marked as my first truly successful foray into the world of gluten-free, vegan baking! Follow her instructions and you will not be disappointed!
