Basic GAPS Cookie Dough

I have been making these cookies for over ten years when my son was 3 and first diagnosed with Autism.  We made little faces on them with all kinds of different emotions.  This was to help with understanding the different emotions and prompt communication when eating them.  My son is now 14 and still enjoys them as a snack.  They are a great lunch box filler and always easy to accompany a cup of tea with visitors. We also mix this recipe up with other things by adding sultanas or cranberries.  Sometimes we make a jam and make jam drops and these are a favourite too.  This cookie mix can also be used as a pie or cheesecake base. it is a must have and very versatile in terms of things that you can add to it for texture flavour and colour. The cookie dough can also be made with tiger nut flour (instead of almond flour) and tahini (instead of nut butter) for those who have food allergies to nuts.  All you have to do is play around with the flour and tahini ratios to make sure that you form a dough suitable to roll and cut with.
