Snickerdoodle Almond Cinnamon Cookies

Let’s be real – the plan was to make Chocolate Chip.

I thought I’d treat myself to a version of Lori Ballen’s chocolate chip cookie recipe before my 48-hour fast.  Well, my “handful of chocolate chips here and there” was more frequent … I didn’t have enough chips.

With the colder months, I thought cinnamon might be a good option and came up with a rendition of a Snickerdoodle.  I scoured Pinterest and tweaked a few recipes to make my own by adding Xantham Gum.
