Hey Hey Happy Tummies!! What a great week this is shaping up to be!
BREAKING NEWS!! As of tomorrow, I will be switching to BLOGGER!! But no worries, when you type “glutenfreehappytummy.com” into your address bar, it will automatically redirect you to my new site. Or, if you want to bookmark my new site, www.glutenfreehappytummy.blogspot.com that would be great too:) The only downside, is that those of you who get my posts via email will no longer be receiving them:( But I’ve got some really exciting recipes coming at ‘cha! It’s a new year and with it comes a whole slew of new recipes!
Including…….this one!! CRANBERRY PISTACHIO COOKIES!!!!
They’re Gluten Free, Vegan, and Specific Carb Diet friendly, and RAW!
Oh my gosh these were amazing. I ate the entire batch myself!! And I’m not ashamed!! :D
Here’s what you need:
1/4 cup almonds
1/4 cup pistachios
1/8 cup dried cranberries (unsweetened)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 cup pistachios, rough chop
1/8 cup dried cranberries, rough chop
You ready for the easiest directions ever?!? THROW EVERYTHING IN THE FOOD PROCESSOR AND BLITZ THEM UP!! That’s it!! Let it run for about 1-2 minutes until a ball forms. Then, roll roughly a Tbsp of the dough into a ball, and then roll in the chopped pistachios and cranberries. Chill for at least an hour…or dig in right away if you can’t resist!
How amazing were these cookies…let me count thy ways! They were wonderfully chewy, with a nice crunch from the chopped pistachio coating. They were sweet and nutty with a slight tang from the cranberries! They were absolutely wonderful!
And so pretty too! The red and green made these so whimsical and fun! They looked like they were “bejeweled” or “bedazzled!” They’d be great for Christmas too!
They were gone before I could give any away to my friends or doormen! Oops! Looks like I’ll be making another batch this weekend!
Did you guys watch the People’s Choice Awards tonight? All I have to say is, “Way to Go Sandra Bullock!” She received the humanitarian award for her work with a New Orleans school. It was a really beautiful story:)
Alright, that’s it for tonight! Please be sure to bookmark glutenfreehappytummy.blogspot.com and check back tomorrow for another new recipe!
Yum, looks fabulous! I love the texture of the nuts and dried fruit on the outside.

Thanks so much. Now to get some of those nuts……..

Hi Caralyn ~ There is a way for you to have email subscribers on blogger. Both my girlfriend (who I live with) and my best friend back in Indiana use blogspot and have subscribers. You have to create a Feedburner acct. through google. Here’s the link: http://www.Feedburner.google.com —I hope you do this because receiving your posts automatically is really quite wonderful (not to mention convenient). :) … If you need any help, let me know.
Thank you so much Dana. I really appreciate that tip. Unfortunately, I have tried this, and Feedburner rejected my blog because it said it exceeded the file size :/ aw well, the email list will have to do! :) Thanks though for the heads up!
