Christmas Cookie Tag-I'm It!

A big shout out to my farmer friend Lynn,
who is celebrating a birthday today.

Although Lil' Guy has multiple food sensitivities,
he can eat nuts of all types.
Thank goodness, as they pack a powerful nutritional punch.

This recipe was adapted from a conventional recipe in our Family Recipe book.
The first version is gluten, dairy and soy-free and can be made egg free as well.
The second version is for folks who don't have to worry about allergies.
