Almond Cookies (Gluten Free/ Refined Sugar Free/ Grain Free/Dairy Free)

I was offered these cookies not long after I had found out about my food allergies.  The recipe is from an Italian friend of mine. The only thing I changed was the sugar. Her original recipe had white sugar.

Best of all there are only four ingredients!
