5. (Gluten Free) Magic Cookie Bars

"Made it for a get-together and it was a huge success. Easy! Very rich but so good!" -- Gin

6. Chevre Cheesecake

"This was great. One would never know it wasn't a standard cheesecake. I used light coconut milk and cultured goat milk. I threw some chocolate chips on top. YUM!" -- BRAGEL. [Editor's Note: People allergic to cow-milk dairy can sometimes tolerate goat milk. This recipe calls for 2 pounds soft goat cheese. You might want to save the expense for a very special occasion, or buy the cheese for less at a warehouse store like Costco or Sam's Club.]
