Gluten Free Almond Cookies

Nowadays everyone has a Gluten-Free friend.  I have a few who can no longer touch flour.  They either have Celiac Disease or break out into hives if they have a piece of toast.  I on the other hand love bread, muffins and pasta.  So, instead of letting them eat cardboard-boxed-high-priced treats I make a big batch of these babies.  Non GF’s will like these too, TDH requests them monthly.
