Recipe Ingredients for Sugar Cut-out Cookies

1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup Tofu
1/3 cup egg beaters
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup Splenda No calorie
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tablespoon Promise Light Buttery spread
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Recipe Directions for Sugar Cut-out Cookies

  1. Preparation

  2. 1. Whisk all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.

  3. 2. Puree tofu in a food processor. Add egg, sugar, splenda, oil, butter and vanilla; process until smooth, stopping once or twice to scrape down the sides. Add the dry ingredients and pulse several times just until dough clumps together.

  4. 3. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead several times. Divide in half and press each piece into a disk. Dust disks with flour and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.

  5. 4. Preheat oven to 350F. Line several baking sheets with parchment paper or coat with cooking spray.

  6. 5. Working with one piece at a time, on a lightly floured surface, roll the dough slightly less than 1/4-inch thick. Cut out shapes with a cookie cutter. Gather scraps and re-roll. Place cookies about 1/2-inch apart on the prepared baking sheets. If using Cinnamon-Sugar Topping, add it now.

  7. 6. Bake cookies, one sheet at a time, until light golden around the edges, 12 to 16 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack and let cool completely.

  8. 7. Decorate cookies as desired.
