No Cholesterol Almond Cookies

Garrison Wayne


This is the second original cookie recipe I have developed to assist with a healthier diet and the lowering of cholesterol in the diet. This is an amazingly delicious and simple cookie. You could dress it up a bit by adding some chopped dried cranberries and some chopped candied ginger...but they are perfectly good plain.."just as is". I hope you love these new healthier desserts!
