No Sugar Sugar Cookies Diabetic Recipe
Dough:
3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 cup light butter, room temperature
1 cup SPLENDA Granular
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup egg substitute
1/4 cup water
3/4 teaspoon vinegar (white or cider)
1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
1-1/2 cups cake flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder

Garnish:
1/3 cup low sugar or no sugar raspberry jam
3 ounces sugar-free chocolate, melted

Directions:
Blend together butters, SPLENDA Granular and vanilla in a medium sized mixing bowl. Blend until butter is softened. Add egg substitute, water and vinegar. Mix briefly. Add flours, salt and baking powder. Mix with electric mixer on low speed (or by hand) until dough is formed. Do not over-mix.

Remove dough from bowl and place on a floured work surface. Divide dough in half. Pat each half into a circle. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour, allowing dough to chill.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil a baking pan or cookie sheet. Set aside.

Remove dough from refrigerator and roll out on a floured work surface to approx. 1/8 inch thick. Cut with large heart shaped cookie cutters. Cut small heart shapes out of the center of half of the cookies (these will be the tops of the finished cookies). Place cookies on a lightly oiled cookie sheet.

Bake in preheated 350 degrees oven 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned on the bottom. Cool on a wire rack.

Lightly drizzle melted chocolate over cookies with the heart cut-outs. Spread 2 tsp. raspberry jam on the remaining cookies. Place the cookies with the heart shaped cut-outs on top of the cookies spread with raspberry jam.

Makes approximately 16 large cookies and 18 smaller cookies or 4 doz. standard sized cookies

    To make this yummy treat, you will need the following ingredients:

    You can use sugar substitute and maybe fat free margerine instead of butter but the flaor won’t be the same. You do need the consistency of shortning to make this work- you could use fat free cream cheese/mayo mix to substitute– it takes a bit of work but I hope it works.

    INGREDIENTS
    1/2 cup butter, softened
    1/2 cup shortning
    1 1/2 cups white sugar equivalent amount of Sugar substitute like Splenda
    2 eggs
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
    2 teaspoons cream of tartar
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons white sugar
    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

    DIRECTIONS
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
    Cream together butter, shortening, 1 1/2 cups sugar, the eggs and the vanilla. Blend in the flour, cream of tartar, soda and salt. Shape dough by rounded spoonfuls into balls.
    Mix the 2 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon. Roll balls of dough in mixture. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
    Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until set but not too hard. Remove immediately from baking sheets
