His Mercy

"His Mercies Are New Every Morning"

A Thought

In this life we can not always do great things. But we can do small things with great love.." :) Mother Teresa

Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Gluten Free Russian Tea Cakes

Gluten Free Russian Tea Cakes 

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract   

1/4 teaspoon salt
2 3/4 cups of Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
1/2 Tsp Xantham Gum 
1 cup finely-chopped  pecans
Powdered  sugar
set aside

mix all ingredients well until creamy.  If dough is too soft  to roll in hands, put in fridge to firm up a little.
Roll some dough into small 1 inch balls.  Bake at 375º until done. (lightly browned on bottom but not on top)
(about 8-10 minutes)
Cool for 10 minutes, roll in powdered sugar and set on wire rack.

Cool completely: then roll in powdered sugar once again.
These are very delicate cookies that taste DELICIOUS!
(for non gluten free: Use same amount of regular flour (not self rising) and omit xantham gum)
