Vegan Gluten-free Peanut Butter Cookies

Vegan Gluten-free Peanut Butter Cookies

This recipe is adapted from Sweet as Honey’s Low Carb Peanut Butter Cookies (Merci Carine!). I used coconut sugar instead of eryhritol (I have no idea what that is but the name is super unappealing) and I added 1/2 tsp of almond extract because I 

Coconut Flour Raspberry Bars

Somehow I ended up with two packages of coconut flour, two large jars of raspberry jam, and two packages of best brown sugar. No, this was not because of pandemic shopping. When this kind of thing happens it’s the universe (and my Scottish heritage) telling

Joulutorttu – Finnish Prune Cookies

My Mummu used to make joulutorttu when we came to visit in the winter time. The combination of a sweet buttery pastry and a tart prune filling are etched in my memory as one of my favourite things. It also happens to be a Finnish
