I’d like to find a tasty diabetic traditional holiday cookie recipe.?

Question by JaimieS: I’d like to find a tasty diabetic traditional holiday cookie recipe.?
I was so disappointed, I tried looking on Yahoo! and ended up getting bombarded by smut! So gross. Cookies/smut – people are sick – does anyone have ideas such as clean websites to visit that have good recipes like this – do you know of any not using artificial sweetners – perhaps fruity?

Holiday Fruit Squares
(Adapted from “Christmas Fruit Squares” from Diabetic-lifestyles.com)

1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup cake flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2/3 cup spoonable brown sugar substitute
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup dried no sugar added cherries
1/2 cup peeled apple, chopped
1/3 cup dried figs, chopped
1 large egg and 1 egg white
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon pineapple juice
Butter-flavored cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350 °F. Line a 9 inch square pan with parchment paper and spray the paper lightly with the butter flavored cooking spray.

Mix the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, brown sugar substitute, and walnuts together in a large bowl. In a second bowl mix the raisins, cherries, apple and figs. Add the fruit to the flour. Mix well to separate the fruit and coat all the fruit with the flour mix.

Beat the egg, egg white, oil, orange juice and pineapple juice together and add to the flour and fruit, stirring until the mixture is evenly moist.

Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and press down so it forms an even surface. Bake on the middle rack for ten minutes. Cool for ten minutes. Cut into 25 squares and allow to cool completely.

One serving equals two squares and is a diabetic exchange for 1 carbohydrate (fruit) and 1 fat.

Gingerbread House Recipe
The following is a simple recipe for making a gingerbread house. Before you start, choose a pattern so that you know the number and size of cut outs you will need. (Adapted from “Building Gingerbread Houses” from allrecipes.com)

1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup molasses
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 tablespoon ginger
1 teaspoon salt
5 cups all purpose flour

Preheat the oven to 375 °F. Melt the cup of butter in a large pan, and then mix in the sugar and molasses, stirring the mixture well. In a separate bowl combine the remaining dry ingredients (baking soda, allspice, ginger, salt, and flour). Slowly mix them into the wet sugar mixture.

Roll the dough for gingerbread houses on a floured surface to an even thickness of 1/4 of an inch. Cut the dough into the pieces required to make gingerbread houses (based on the pattern you have selected). Bake for thirteen to fifteen minutes. Let the pieces cool for a few minutes, and then transfer them to cookie racks.

Cement Icing for Gingerbread Houses
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
2 1/2 cups confectioner’s (icing) sugar
1/2 teaspoon almond extract (optional)
2 egg whites

Because the cement dries soon after it is made, wait until the gingerbread is completely cool before making the cement. Mix the cream of tartar with the confectioner’s sugar. Add the vanilla and the egg whites.

Beat the mixture at high speed until the frosting holds its own shape (add more confectioner’s sugar if necessary).

Use the cement to build gingerbread houses immediately, as the cement dries quickly. Cover the cement bowl with a damp cloth to slow the drying process.

Cookies as Ornaments
Some people use cookies as Christmas decorations, hanging cookies on the tree as ornaments. Nearly any of your favorite cookie recipes can be adapted to make Christmas ornaments. The key to turning a cookie into an ornament is to poke a hole in the top of the cookies (a straw generally works best) before you bake them. After baking and decorating the cookies, you can string a ribbon through them and pepper them all over your Christmas tree.

Christmas Cookies Recipes: Cinnamon-Orange Snickerdoodles
While Christmas cookies can serve as decorations, they are most commonly a yummy, festive snack. Baking Christmas cookies can be a kid’s favorite Christmas activity and can be given to friends as a heartfelt Christmas gift. Easy to make and even easier to eat, snickerdoodles are popular Christmas cookies.

1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon orange extract
1 tablespoon grated orange rind
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat the oven to 375 °F. Beat shortening, brown sugar, white sugar, orange extract, and orange rind until fluffy. Beat in the two eggs.

In a separate bowl combine the dry ingredients: flour, cinnamon, salt, cream of tartar and baking soda. Add dry ingredients to the wet sugar mixture and mix well.

Grease a cookie sheet and drop rounded teaspoons of cookie dough onto the sheet. Combine the remaining tablespoon of sugar and teaspoon of cinnamon and sprinkle over the cookies. Bake for eight to ten minutes.

Christmas Sugar Cookies
Sugary goodness! Sugar cookies are often included in Christmas cookies recipes. If you feel even more creative, bust out the food coloring and make fun, festive Christmas designs on them. (Adapted from “Sugar Cookies” recipe from gardenhelper.com)

1 cup butter
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 egg
1 tablespoon vanilla
4 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking soda

In a large bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla extract until the mixture is fluffy. Then mix in the dry ingredients (flour and baking soda) until well combined.

Chill the dough at least two hours, then roll on a floured surface until 1/8 of an inch thick. Cut with Christmas cookie cutters, place the shapes on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 °F for ten minutes or until lightly browned.

How can I find a low glycemic index bread?

Question by kcat: How can I find a low glycemic index bread?
I am pre-diabetic, so I am limiting my intake of foods with a high glycemic index (gi) value such as candy, cookies, cake, white bread, white rice, etc. I want to switch to a whole grain bread with a low gi value. Is there any way to tell, by looking at a bread’s nutrition label, what its gi value is?

Answer by HeidiMars
Yes and if it doesn’t have one, usually the salesclerk could help you out with that. Although it would be best to go to a specialty store than your regular supermarket. You can search online for stores in your area. For other help, see source box below.
