Orange Almond Cookies

I made this recipe to satisfy a craving for a shortbread style cookie. Instead of using cups and spoons, I have learned I get more consistent results using a kitchen scale.

  Ardys has created these yummy mug muffins and I have to say they look too good to be true!  I’m going to test them out myself tonight! It looks like they take about 2 minutes to make and Ardys says they keep her going for hours! Please remember that grain-free desserts are still desserts.  Just because…
