Enjoy gluten-free Espresso Chocolate Fudge Cookies with ice cold ice cream. Mix ’em and bake ’em in the morning. Eat’em in the afternoon, then freeze ’em. One cookie at a time, they’ll call your name (really shout at you) until the whole box is gone. You won’t be disappointed. Leave your comments below and let me know how you liked them.

This recipe comes from my good friend Patricia who owns the website Her’s is a site that is impeccable for its photography and tutorials. She has hundreds of excellent recipes. Visit the original post here. She calls this cookie Gluten Free Fudge Cookies. You might notice that the only change I made is in the name.

  • Bake on the center rack for 8-12 minutes. The cookies should begin to crack when they’re done. Because of their texture, they won’t over bake easily. Just make sure they are firm to the touch before removing them from the oven.


  • Allow the cookies to cool completely on the sheet pan.
