Watching your sugar intake? No-Sugar Sugar Cookies
Just made these "sugar" cookies today. They are quite tasty.
What you need:
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup SPLENDA Sugar Blend for Baking
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Optional Garnishes: decorative candies and colored sugars
What you do:
1 BEAT butter at medium speed with an electric mixer in a medium mixing bowl until creamy. Gradually add SPLENDA Sugar Blend for Baking, beating well. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in vanilla.
2 COMBINE flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate mixing bowl. Gradually add flour mixture SPLENDA Sugar Blend for Baking mixture, beating until blended. Do not over-mix.
3 PLACE dough on a lightly floured work surface. Divide dough in half; pat each half into a circle and wrap with plastic wrap. Chill cookie dough for one hour or until slightly firm.
4 PREHEAT oven to 325 degrees F.
5 REMOVE dough from refrigerator. Work with one portion of dough at a time. Roll each portion to 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut with a cookie cutter, and place on lightly greased cookie sheets. Sprinkle with decorative candies or colored sugars, if desired.
6 BAKE in preheated oven 8 to 10 minutes or until edges of cookies are lightly browned. Cool slightly on cookie sheets; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
