These are great for Christmas gifts. For a richer almond flavour, use almond extract or almond liqueur instead of the vanilla.

Full of flavour, melt in the mouth and wonderfully crisp. Taste truly indulgent but are quite virtuous with less fat and sugar than most and complex carbohydrates for a lower GI score:-) I came up with this recipe to help friends with morning sickness as ginger is a great help for anyone suffering nausea.

A reduced fat, reduced calorie yummy, soft oatmeal raisin cookie that uses light margarine spread rather than butter and a calorie free sugar substitute rather than caster sugar. Also dairy free, these cookies are a yummy good idea if you have any of these dietary needs or preferences.

Chocolate biscotti, made with your favourite chocolate bar! You can use almond instead of hazelnuts, if desired, and can use any other type of chocolate bar. Plain chocolate works well.
