Today as I was mixing the cookie dough and baking heart shaped cookies for a few different events I realized our favorite recipe was not one that I would want to serve our own family because of the ingredients that we were no longer including in our meal plan.

We are now trying to eat dairy-free, gluten-free and omit sugar. So I decided to make 2 batches; one as we always made them before and the other by using healthier ingredients.

One batch will be taken to our seniors for door prizes and the other will be taken to a family house warming party, leaving some for us to serve & enjoy here at home.

The first batch of VALENTINE’S COOKIES is the one we always enjoyed & have used for years. It reminds me of shortbread cookies!

Why not try the healthier version of these VALENTINE’S COOKIES!
