Coconut Almond Thumbprint Cookies - Gluten Free & Sugar Free

Photo: Sage123

It's Christmas time and our family enjoys a great cookie. The only thing is we only eat healthy gluten free and sugar free products. This cookie idea came to mind thinking back over my childhood. My mother loved to make Christmas cookies and the thumbprint cookie was one of my favorites. Now I can share this super healthy version that tastes even better than the original - I promise.
