|This unusual but simple recipe for sumptuous gluten-free cookies was created by illustrator Carol Kearns, whose work can be found in her online Etsy shop TheMuseumShelves.|
This recipe is so quick and easy to make yet the resulting cookies are surprisingly decadent with a rich chocolatey flavour and a lovely slightly squidgy centre. Using Hodemedod’s British grown and milled green pea flour (currently 25% off!) means that they are also gluten-free though no-one, to date, has guessed that they are made with pea rather than wheat flour.
I was inspired to add the pistachios because of the beautiful colour of the green pea flour but these cookies are wonderfully adaptable, so give them a whirl with hazelnuts and white chocolate, or substitute glacé cherries or dried apricots for the nuts.
Delicious with a cup of tea or coffee you could also serve them for pudding - still slightly warm from the oven - with a scoop of ice-cream!
Makes 12 generous cookies
