About to pull these put of the oven! They smell so good!!


I am happy to hear that, I will work on the chocolate version, I know my family will love them!


Just made these tonight. I used Bob's Red Mill almond flour. I don't have a sifter, so I just whisked everything well, and they didn't seem to suffer. This recipe was super easy and came out so well. I added the tiniest pinch of nutmeg, allspice, and cloves as well. I want a chocolate version of this cookie!
