If you are sensitive to gluten, or simply wheat, or you have a loved one with those sensitivities, you’ll want to have some quick and simple gluten-free (GF) recipes handy. Here are two easy ones that require no technical expertise at all. The GF Almond Cookies are the simplest cookie recipe I have ever seen, and they freeze well. Not that they will last long, once your guests taste one! The Honey-Pecan-Pumpkin Cake is a classic winter cake with a Southern flare, and it freezes well also. You can make it with- or without the nuts. Have fun with these!

- 1 c. almond butter (organic if possible)
