Four stacked almond-maple cookies with almond garnish

Super Simple and Gluten Free

This super-simple, gluten-free recipe doesn’t require much work. In fact, these cookies only have three ingredients! If you’re not planning to use them right away, wait until they are completely cooled and store them in a freezer-safe container. With this method, the cookies will retain their original crispness when you are ready to serve them. Be sure to remove them from the container before defrosting them. This perfectly chewy yet crisp treat pairs well with a hot drink on a cool day, or try one topped with your favorite nondairy vanilla ice cream.
