Welcome to Summer 2014! It’s been a while since we’ve talked. Sorry about that. I hope you’ve been enjoying the first half of my favorite season. I certainly have been!
I’ve got a terrifically easy sweet treat to add to your summer dessert arsenal. Besides being delicious, it’s no-bake, and can be gluten-free. And they are bite-size, which I think means you can have more than one, doesn’t it?
Food & Wine calls these Peanut Butter Cinnamon Sea Salt Cookies, I call them delicious. They come together in no time (very important when you need to get back to the pool or beach), and if you want to keep gluten-free, the recipe calls for gluten-free old-fashioned rolled oats. I made them (twice) with regular since that’s what I had in the house. They combine all the essential dessert groups (except chocolate): sweet, salty, crunchy, and moist (from the secret ingredient: dates!). They keep very well in the fridge, and I imagine would travel nicely in a pic-a-nic basket.
These elicited serious yummy noises from my very willing tasters. I’m sure your local dessert mongers will do the same.
Enjoy the summer!
