Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! As a kid one of my favorite holiday cookies (made by my wonderful grandmother) were her thumb prints. The raspberry and apricot always got scooped up first! This year I decided to remake them into a healthier and gluten free version, so I wouldn’t go another year without them! I hope you enjoy!

Have a great Monday! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Yum! they do look good! Although I have one problem....I cannot bring myself to pay $12.99 for almond flour. Do you know anywhere that sells it for less than that? I would love to begin using it, but for a small bag, I just do not have the money at this point in my life! Thanks so much for the recipe :)

          I like the idea of this recipe, but it says I would need to buy the cookbook, which I'm open to, but on the page with the cookbook does not have this recipe listed as one of the 30? Is it included but not listed?
