Easy Gluten Free Lemon Almond Cookies

Easy Gluten Free Lemon Almond Cookies recipe

The best recipes are sometimes the simplest. Like this one for Gluten Free Lemon Almond Cookies. Sarah and I were in a video with Healthy Grocery Girl and I needed to bring something with lemon. I love cooking with almond meal so I decided to combine the flavors and came up with these cookies. They are quick and easy and can be made in one bowl.

While they’re cooking, mix lemon juice and powdered sugar to make a glaze. Add 1 part lemon juice to 4 parts powdered sugar (it should be thickish, but thin enough to pour over cookies).
