Gluten-Free & Vegan Shortbread Cookies with Jam

I have the fondest memories of thumbprint jam cookies as a kid! My mom would always put them into our lunches for school and my favorite were the raspberry jam! I got the most amazing package from Foodlyn and couldn't resist remaking these cookies with vegan ingredients and also gluten free! 


This was the most delicious jam I have ever tasted! The raspberry has a hint of basil and just coats your body in a hug of delicious! But, I love pears! Like LOVE pears! When I tasted this pear jam I wanted to jump up and down its so amazing! The hint of vanilla bean in the jam adds the most amazing pairing to the shortbread cookies!


These cookies are perfect for the winter when you need a hint of summer! The jam adds the freshest bite to the cookie and you can't just have one!


Seriously, you need to place an order for these jams and try out this recipe! It will immediately transport you back to your childhood! Tag me in them when you make them and enjoy!

Sugar Free Hazelnut Truffles

Happy New Year!! I'm challenging myself to do another 30 days of being sugar free! As you guys know after Thanksgiving I removed refined sugar from my diet until Christmas just to make my body function better! There is nothing wrong with eating a diet that includes sugar, my body just functions better without it!

One reason I give up refined sugar even as a recipe developer is I suffer from chronic headaches! By reducing or removing the refined foods and sugar from my diet my headaches really subside and mostly disappear!

BUT, that doesn't mean that I don't crave sweets like any other lady at that time of the month! I tend to crave chocolates or cookies and these truffles had my tummy so satisfied after just 1!


My hazelnut truffles are sugar free, creamy, with a slight crunch, and taste like heaven!


This is a definite must try recipe if you are looking into New Years Resolutions! Healthy, delicous and tastes like there might be sugar in it - but there isn't! Check it out and try it for yourself!
