Too spicy and the smell of the pork rinds was overwhelming

My husband and I were a bit weary of cookies made with pork rinds, but they are pretty good. They are not very sweet but if you are in the mood for a healthy cookie then this would be great. I did not have fresh ginger or an orange handy so I just added ground ginger and dried orange zest. I think fresh would make this cookie even better. Also I don't care for almonds so I added a bit of almond butter in place of the walnuts. I will definitely make this one again!
