This was an excellent recipe. I did not however roll them into balls. I put the nuts in a flat dish. I used 2 teaspoons, scooped up dough in one teaspoon, dipped it into the nuts, and pushed it onto a silpat with the other teaspoon. This also alleviated the need to used a gluten free flour adding more calories. They baked great and the taste just as good as my traditional cookies. I also used Italian and Spanish nuts, not the Chinese ones. The Chinese nuts are too small and I wanted the presentation of the cookies to look like my traditional ones so no one would know the difference. The recipes are close, but my traditional Italian cookie does have regular flour. But I stress, I did not notice a difference. These are a winner!

Hey guys - For the last few years I've dealt with energy issues, emotional lethargy, grogginess, and recently OCD, so I decided to go gluten-free 4 weeks ago. After a week of dizzy spells, irritability and insane cravings it felt like a veil had been lifted from me - I felt lighter on my feet, en...

Ok so is this really true?!?! Conventional? Remember, the fecal transplant was first described in the 1950s, but took decades to catch on as a conventional treatment for gut disorders, such as c-dif bacteria, partly because it was seen as crude and somehow objectionable. But it proved to wor...
