I make no secret of my love for Saveur, especially since Gourmet went more or less defunct. Saveur truly is like food porn. I drool over the photos whenever I get my hot little hands on a copy.

I was thrilled to see two recipes for holiday cookies that just so happen to be naturally gluten-free because they are made with nut flours.
BK loves pignoli cookies but I didn’t realize they were made with almond flour until we were in Italy last summer. I want to try this recipe out soon.
I’m also admiring these “Baci di Dama” cookies, which are made with hazelnut flour. I bought a cake mix made with hazelnut flour at Eataly in Genoa and the cake turned out amazingly. It was sweet and nutty without being at all overly sweet. I made it for my mom’s birthday and it went perfectly with some good vanilla gelato. If these cookies are anything like that cake, I’m sure they’re wonderful. I just wish nuts and nut flours weren’t so expensive….
