Chocolate Chip Cookies with Date Sugar

I discovered some date sugar at a discount store and really wanted to try it.  I had read that you could interchange it with brown sugar, but it did not mix in as well as regular sugar did.

We decided to start with our favorite cookies and experiment.  The cookies are soft and cake like, but very good!  I thought they were a little to sweet, so next time I will reduce the sugars.  But everyone else thought they were perfect.

These cookies work well with regular flour if you do not want them gluten free.

Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Brownies

Andrea wanted a less sweet grain free brownie.  It is slightly crumbly and a little dry, but goes wonderfully with ice cream or whipped cream.

If you want it sweeter, replace part or all of the unsweetened chocolate with semi sweet baking chocolate.
