Christmas Decorations Christmas is a hands-on art. From the lights we put on the house to the decorations we put on the tree to the great foods we eat in the process, Christmas is a time of doing -- and this is the place we gather to talk, plan and share.

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.
