Bake a Batch of Better-For-You Holiday Cookies
To help you make this sweet tradition a little more wholesome, here’s a sugar-free sugar holiday cookie recipe that uses better baking essentials like organic flour, ethically sourced Madagascar vanilla extract (it comes from beans grown on a local farm co-op), and a very convincing 1:1 sugar replacement.
- 1 Cup Butter (room temperature )
- 1 1/4 Cup Swerve Granular Sugar Replacement
- 1 egg
- 1 3/5 Cup All Purpose Flour
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- Dark Chocolate Baking Chips
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
Preheat the oven to 375F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat for easy clean-up.
In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and Swerve using a hand mixer until light and fluffy. Next, add the egg and mix until well combined.
Stir in the flour, baking powder, salt, and vanilla extract.
Using a tablespoon, scoop dough into balls. Place dough balls onto cookie sheet about 1 ½ to 2 inches apart. Lightly press each dough ball with the bottom of a glass until slightly flattened.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely on wire racks.
Melt chocolate chips in a bowl, either in the microwave (in 20-second intervals) or over a double boiler. Once cookies are cooled, decorate with the melted chocolate by drizzling or dipping. Allow chocolate to set before serving.
Yield: 24 cookies
