Recipe Ingredients for low calorie sugar cookies

5 tbsp butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

Recipe Directions for low calorie sugar cookies

  1. Using a mixer, beat butter and sugar until creamy.

  2. Add egg and vanilla, mixing well.

  3. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.

  4. Gradually stir flour mixture into butter and sugar until dough forms. Don't worry if the dough seems a little crumbly at first; it will come together.

  5. Wrap dough in plastic and chill for two hours in the refrigerator. (nb--I didn't bother to refrigerate the dough and the cookies were fine, just a bit more sticky to deal with).

  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  7. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to a 1/4-inch or 1/8-inch thickness.

  8. Use holiday cookie cutters dipped in flour to make cutouts.

  9. Gather scraps and re-roll until all the dough is used.

  10. Place cookies 1 inch apart on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.

  11. Bake for 9-10 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.

  12. Transfer to wire rack after 1 minute to cool.
