During our winter break of our freshman year of college, my high school best friend and I planned a long day of hanging out and catching up before our extended families came into town for Christmas. We decided to bake holiday cookies at her house, so I drove over with my family’s extensive and eclectic collection of cookie cutters.
We found a traditional recipe online, one that instructed us to cream the butter and sugar, chill the dough, and roll it out with plenty of all-purpose flour. After a little quick math before started, we doubled the recipe to ensure we had plenty of cookies to give to both of our families.
That evening, we stood back and admired our hard work. Dozens of stars, sleighs, candy canes, and snowmen cookies covered the kitchen counter… Along with a mess of white flour and sugar. Whoops!
But this holiday season, I’m using my recipe for The Ultimate Healthy Sugar Cookies instead! They’re much easier to make—no mixer required and no flour involved in rolling out the dough, thanks to my secret trick!
Even better? These cookies contain no refined flour or sugar and just 41 calories, but they taste just as soft and buttery as traditional recipes! My family raves about them and looks forward to them every year!
