Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies - Gluten Free - Diabetic Friendly

Delicious cookies! They are quick, easy, and might just be better than the ones with flour!! You can make these with cashew, almond, hazelnut, chocolate hazelnut, or pistachio butter, and you can use gluten free/dairy free chocolate chips too.

Swedish Ginger Cookies

This fantastic cookie was in the Holiday 2003 edition of the LCBO's Food & Drink Magazine. The cookie has a lot of ginger flavour thanks to the crystallized ginger and is slightly chewy in texture. You can make it more crispy by increasing the flour to 2 cups from 1 3/4 cups called for in this recipe.

Red Current Cookies

From Oetker Baking is Fun. Use jams other than red currant if you wish. The number of cookies you end up with will depend on how thick or thin the dough is rolled out. I've converted the measurements into American volume measurements but I've left the European weight measurements in brackets after the ingredient)

Lemon Delights

These painfully easy cookies are a huge hit with the kids every time I make them. You can use different flavours of cake mix for variety if you'd like (I've made chocolate, cherry, and red velvet successfully). I always double these so I don't have to deal with a half-carton of Cool Whip, but that's up to you.
