December 6, 2023 – Giving & Recipe of the Month: GF cookies

Hello Folks!

These cookies are so popular with my family that one of my daughters made them for her college buddies. They devoured the cookies in about 15 minutes.

They aren’t sugar-free, but I don’t see where you couldn’t play with sugar substitutes. I just don’t have any on hand.

The mix-ins can vary, too. We use chocolate chips and crushed peppermint. You could use pistachios, almond slivers, walnut pieces, white chocolate bits, sugar-free candy bits, dried fruit bits…really anything you want.

This recipe was shared with me by a sweet friend almost a decade ago.

Let us know if you play with the recipe, and what mix-ins you use.

When you give to someone in need, don’t do as the hypocrites do—blowing trumpets in the synagogues and streets to call attention to their acts of charity! I tell you the truth, they have received all the reward they will ever get. But when you give to someone in need, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.
Matthew 6:2-4, NLT


In this season of gift giving, make some cookies–it doesn’t have to be these–and give them to someone. Probably wouldn’t be good to give them to a stranger, but, as the Lord leads give them to someone. God will show you who needs a smile.

Father, thank you for the gift of your Son. Help us to pass on your love. Use us in ways that we least expect to bless those who need it. In Jesus Name, Amen.
Merry Christmas,
