A stack of four dairy free chocolate chip cookies sits front and center. The top cookie is broken in half to show the texture of the interior. In the lower right is a small wooden bowl with chocolate chips. In the upper left is a light purple tea towel. In the upper right is a wire cookie rack with more dairy free chocolate chip cookies. Scattered about are crumbs, chocolate chips, and the other cookie half. Everything sits on a white marble background. This is the horizontal photo.
