Recipe Ingredients for Low-Fat Sugar Cookies

1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
5 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup Splenda
1/4 cup Egg Beaters
1 tsp vanilla extract

Recipe Directions for Low-Fat Sugar Cookies

  1. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in medium-sized mixing bowl and set aside.

  2. In large bowl or electric mixer, beat together butter and Splenda until creamy. Add egg substitute and vanilla extract and stir well.

  3. Gradually add flour mixture, stirring constantly, until combined, but still somewhat crumbly.

  4. Divide dough in half, wrap in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator to chill for at least 1 1/2 hours.

  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Lightly flour counter or other working surface, and turn out one half of dough onto it. Roll out to between 1/8- and 1/4-inches in thickness, then used lightly floured cookie cutters to cut desired shapes (eg hearts for Valentine's Day or stars, trees, etc for the winter holidays).

  6. Gather scraps, and roll out again, until no more cookies can be cut. Discard scraps.

  7. Place cookies at least 1 inch apart on lined baking sheet and bake 9-10 minutes or until edges turn golden. While the first batch are baking is a good time to repeat the rolling and cutting process with the second half of the dough.

  8. Let baked cookies sit 1 minute on baking sheet, then remove to wire racks or cut-open brown paper bags to cool. Decorate as desired with powdered sugar, icing, and/or small candies.
