My kids love to make these cookies, and they make wonderful gifts! A great cookie for vegans or people who are lactose-intolerant.

These were perfect for the holidays: easy to make, yummy, and healthy. They will definitely become a holiday tradition for us. I used dates and fresh squeezed orange juice, and replaced the raisins with dried cranberries. Thanks for posting!
