Amaranth Cookies

Amaranth Cookies

This is a great way to feed those pesky cravings for something spicy and sweet. The dough rolls out like any sugar cookie and is perfect for cookie-cutters and decorating. Cardamom, orange peel, and cinnamon contribute a golden, warming flavour, while coconut oil provides healthy fats.
