"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Make Diabetic-friendly Cookies

The project:
Make a batch of shortbread cookies that meet the requirements of a diabetic artist we've recently met.

40 minutes or so, including cleanup.

Why bother?
This artist has been giving local kids some pointers. As a diabetic, most of the treats given him are passed on directly to his wife. I was hoping to provide a treat he, too, could enjoy.

Worth it?
Yes, though he was reluctant to take them until I provided the recipe. Then what a smile and sigh of relief he gave as he carried the cookies away.
