Gluten Free Dairy Free Gingerbread Cakes

Joan organized lunch at Brita’s house last week and agreed to let me to bring dessert because it would help ME.

This year, among other things, she served tiny cheddar “biscuits” made with bits of savory bacon. Not bragging, not even particularly proud, but bacon hasn’t been on the marketing list for months.
