And yet another cookie and recipe-



I blame it on Arthur.And his blog, michaelangelo in the kitchen.

He came to visit and commented on my St. Nicholas cookies.

So I followed him back and “OH MY GOODNESS” – he IS  Michaelangelo in the kitchen.  NO KIDDING.  Go take a look at his artistry- he is amazing.

I usually just go to be awed and don’t really even try to make his stuff.  I’m a rank amateur in his world.  But these cookies (little breads) looked doable and delicious and involved some of my favorite ingredients.

So I decided to adapt them to my larder and capabilities.

Mix together the following ingredients:

2 cups almond meal (I put my almonds in the food processor for a very long time.)

1 cup mashed white sweet potato ( I had orange>)

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 of the white of a small egg.

When mixed thoroughly, shape into chestnut sized balls and roll into pine nuts or chopped Macadamian nuts or coconut or even crushed graham craackers.

I liked the macadamian nuts the best.

Then place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, paint on a light egg wash and bake at 350 degrees F  for about 12-15 minutes.  Keep an eye on them= they burn quickly. 

These are so good- and kind of good for you and gluten-free!


Try them- I’m pretty sure you are going to love, love , love them, too!
