Ginger cookies are a warming and delicious healthy snack made with almonds, coconut oil, egg, honey and spices. They are gluten free and easy to make. When you hold them up to the light the ginger makes little glowing windows. The beautiful scalloped textured sides of these cookies were made by my Grandfather’s old fashioned cookie cutter.
