Christmas is my favorite time of the year and Christmas would not be complete without Christmas cookies. It’s a tradition that Christmas cookies have to be made and there are millions to choose from. We have many favorites and I remember when I was a little girl my mom opened her Christmas bakery in November and made cookies for the entire neighborhood to share. I love the smell and the deliciousness but now as a mom myself I like to cut down the sugar a little bit in our favorite cookies.
What… you don’t think it’s possible? I beg you different. This year I made some sugar swirl cookies and I reduced the added sugar and calories thanks to the new SPLENDA® Sweetener Products. It was super easy to swap out some of the sugar and replace it with the SPLENDA® Sugar Blend. Did you know that 1 cup regular sugar in a recipe would only need 1/2 cup of the SPLENDA® Sugar Blend? It’s that simple to reduce sugar in any of your favorite recipes. #SweetSwaps
I’m excited, now I can have my cookies and actually feel good eating them. The kids had no idea that I reduced the sugar and calories in these delicious Sugar Swirl cookies and they ate and kept raving about how great they turned out.
If I can make the switch and cut out added sugar and calories, I know you can, too. I’ve never made these Sugar Swirl Cookies before and always thought they are difficult to make, guess what… They took no time at all. It’s easier than cutting out cookies with a cookie cutter. I think they turned out great and since the kids loved the taste, I think it was a win win for all.
Wishing you and your Family a
Very Merry Christmas!!!
