Sweets for my Sweet

I made these cookies for my valentine, and thought I'd post a photo. They are quite yummy.   They are supposed to be made into a sandwich cookie like in whoopie pies, but I like the look of them with the whipped cream piled on top.  Otherwise they would get too thick, as mine turned out not to be a thin cookie, but quite substantial. They are made of almond flour, and gluten-free, from Elana Amsterdam's the Gluten-Free Almond Flour cookbook.  Loosely based on her Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, because of course I never follow a recipe exactly.  And the topping is whipping cream and marscapone whipped together, with a little sweetener and vanilla mixed in. As I said, yum, yum. Isn't Valentine's Day fun?


  1. R U on a gluten-free diet? Gramma in SP

    1. Pretty much gluten-free, yes, but not entirely. It is not as difficult as you might think. I must admit, though, sugar is the bane of my existence!
