Ginger Cookies. A great way to start the season of holiday baking.

Over the years I have participated in and organized many holiday baking exchanges. Trouble is there are always food allergies to take in to consideration. Chief among these is a sensitivity to gluten. I wish I had been Keto back then so I could share these cookies with my friends and coworkers.

The non-Keto versions were always a hit and these are just as good and even better for you.
