Making cookies for a child with tree nut allergies?

I want to send my cousins and their child some cookies for Valentines Day. The child has a tree nut allergy. I think it's cashews but they avoid all nuts because they're usually processed together. Any ingredients that for sure contain nuts or traces of nuts?

  • You are making from scratch? Just avoid nuts.

  • almond extract
    almond butter
    you may check vegetable oils (though it is not usually in there)
    other than that just the nuts themselves.
