This is the first cookie I made for this holiday season. I had jars of almond paste and pistachio paste in the pantry and I found these cookies on King Arthur flour site. There is no flour, no dairy and no oil/ fat recipe — gluten free and diary free recipe. Egg whites hold the cookies together. Cookies turned out chewy and delicious.These cookies are very easy to put together. No refrigeration is required, so these can be made when with no prior planning and no time at all. Perfect when you need cookies or something sweet really really fast 🙂Recipe adapted from here:
