Cer Te’s New Gluten Free Chocolate Cookie is Kind of Amazing
Certe (55th btw 5th+6th) and Pizza by Certe (56th btw Park+Lex) are great go-to for savory options, but they aren’t slacking when it comes to picking up an afternoon treat. Their latest sweet is a Chocolate Cherry Pecan Lizardi and what’s wonderful about it is that your gluten-free coworkers can get in on the action!
The Lizardi is like a small Levain bakery “cookie” in that it’s decadent and brownie-esque. The richness may overwhelm some (not myself, obviously) so be prepared to share if that sounds like you. The thickness comes from the lack of flour as the ingredients are sugar, cocoa, chocolate, egg whites, salt, pecans, and dried cherries. I’m usually a bit squeamish when it comes to fruit with my chocolate, but I was quite fine with the cherries in this. All in all, it’s a pretty great treat to pick up for less than $2.50.
