These cookies were created while we were in the middle of candida dieting.  Dinner plans with friends meant we needed a dessert.  This one was easy to make and delicious.  Our friends did not even realize we were “dieting.”  You don’t have to be so precise with cookie size.  We were because it looked nice to have a pile of cookies on the tray!
