I used to make it a point to spend one week each year taking classes at the John C. Campbell Folk School (folkschool.org) in Murphy, North Carolina. Nestled in a beautiful mountainside setting with the Appalachian Trail close by, the folk school offers a range of classes to satisfy every interest and hobby.
During one of my visits I enrolled in a story-telling class and had lots of great classmates; one of which had a serious allergy to anything chicken, including eggs. I thought about my old friend the other day when I found this recipe and adapted it to not only be egg-free, but gluten-free as well.
These cookies are not too sweet and are moist and crumbly instead of chewy. They’re really good, especially with the bit of chocolate added. I hope you enjoy making them as much as I do.
