    Hello and Happy Holidays!
    I am excited to have found vegan recipies by a Black woman.
    I made the Stamped Almond cookies (minus the stamps) for my Dad. This recipe is very simple; the cookies are delicious. I’m going to mody this recipe to make rugelach and kolachki/bow ties.
    I used this recipe as an excuse to increase my supply of cookie stamps by…100%. ?
    Looking forward to trying more of your recipies.
    Thank you abd Happy New year!
