Delicious Sugar Free Cookies

Sugar Free Sugar Cookies

There is nothing quite like the smell of fresh sugar cookies baking in the oven. And the taste is so wonderful with the combination of sweet vanilla and butter creamed together with a cup of sugar.

Finally going on a sugar free diet doesn't necessarily mean that you have to give up everything that you love. Nor does it mean that you have to consume a lot chemicals in the form of diet sweeteners.

With the large variety of healthy natural sweeteners available on the market today you should have no trouble at all in finding the right sweetener to fit the needs of you and your family. I recently started using xylitol in my cooking and my whole family loves it. Just add it to foods the same as you would with sugar and most people won't even be able to tell the difference.

The recipe that you will find below is a sugar free sugar cookie recipe that I just recently tried and not only is it delicious, but you really can't tell that wasn't made with sugar. Which makes it a great choice for your waistline, teeth and blood sugar levels.


Ingredients

1 1/2 granulated xylitol
1 large egg
1 1/2 stick of butter softened
2 tsp. vanilla
2 1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Directions

1.Cream together your xylitol and butter then add the egg and vanilla

2. Sift together your flour, baking powder and salt and add to your butter mixture taking care to mix well.

3. Roll the cookie dough into balls and then roll it in a mixture of xylitol and cinnamon.

4. Place balls on a cookie sheet and light smash down using fork.

5. Bake at 350 degrees in pre-heated oven for approx. 8 minutes or until lightly browned.

Tips

Xylitol is dangerous for dogs to consume, so if you do have pets take care that they don't have access to it or to items baked with xylitol.

Xylitol can cause gastrointestinal upset when consumed in large amounts so it's probably a good idea to not over do it.
