THE CHUNKY CHOCOLATE CHIP:
I had my glass of milk ready. I was prepared to try and mask the taste and to try basically drown out the taste of the cookie . Don't I sound like a skeptic? Well, I was pleasantly surprised by my first bite! I did end up dipping my cookie in the milk because I really like the cookie-dunk technique. I had a hard time sticking to the recommended serving size of one cookie but I did because I had another cookie to review!
By the way...there is no dairy in the cookies itself, unless you decide to dunk the cookie in milk like I did.

THE LEMON SHORTBREAD:
I love lemon. I love anything lemon. I had high expectations for this cookie. In my days prior to my diagnosis, I would get lemon pies, lemon donuts and well...lemon anything. Now that I have to be careful with dressings, I sprinkle lemon juice on my salad. I was not too worried about the flavor of these cookies, since I had already sampled the goodness of the chocolate chip ones.
I decided to ditch the milk. I wanted to try these with out the dairy taste in my mouth. I wanted to taste the wonderful lemon. I really loved the lemon shortbread cookies. I found them to be perfectly tart and divine! They are great on their own or they would perfectly accompany a cup of tea!

This recipe is super casual. You only need enough to make as much as you need. I only made one so I didn't make much. It is so yummy and perfect for spring and summer!
-Chocolate Pudding (you don't need to make from scratch, you can use a pudding snack pack!)
-Strawberries (washed & sliced)
- Gluten Free Lemon Shortbread Cookie
Fill the glass about 1/4 full with pudding. Then take the cookie and cut it in pieces. Place it in the pudding. Take the strawberries and cover glass in strawberry goodness!. I loaded mine up. Then garnish the top with whipped cream. The lemon and strawberries make this so tasty and chocolate is always delicious!
