With more time on my hands, I have had the opportunity to create some cookie recipes. Since I am now, primarily gluten and dairy-free, it’s harder for me to have sweets. It’s a bummer. But, not this time, this Cranberry and Macadamia Nut Cookie recipe is super easy to make and I was so happy that the gluten-free cookie mix box indicated a suggestion on how to make it dairy-free too.
While walking through the grocery store, I found this product from King Arthur Flour Gluten Free Cookie Mix. It’s a basic cookie mix that can be modified easily as you will see in the recipe I created below using this product.

It’s that easy. The Macadamia Nut and Cranberry Cookie recipe can be made for anyone but especially the ones that have food sensitivities. It was crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle. I'm definitely going to make this one again.
