Ingredients

Cookie Ingredients:

Icing Ingredients:

  • Optional: food coloring gel (for different color icing) 
  •  

    Directions

    • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 2-3 baking sheets with parchment paper.

     

    Make Your Cookie Dough:

    1. Using a handheld or stand mixer, beat the butter and the Purecane™ zero-calorie Baking Sweetener on medium-high speed until you get a fluffy texture. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and vanilla extract until well-combined.
    2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Pour about half of the flour mixture into the wet mixture and mix until just combined. Then add the rest of the flour and continue mixing until combined. 
    3. Roll the dough out to about ¼” in thickness, and place onto your 2 pieces of parchment paper on the baking sheets. Cover lightly with saran wrap or dish towels and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (the chilling will help the cookies hold their shape if you’re using holiday-shaped cookie cutters). 
    4. Once the dough has chilled, cut into shapes using cookie cutters. 
    5. Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes, until they’re a light golden color. Allow to cool completely before icing. 

     

    Make your Icing:

    6. While the cookies are cooling, prepare the icing. Mix together Purecane™ Confectioners Sweetener, vanilla extract, and 2 tablespoons of milk in a bowl until you have an icing consistency. If needed, add more milk ½ tablespoon at a time until you reach the desired consistency.
    7. Optional: separate the icing into bowls and add food coloring gel to make different color icing for decorating.
    8. Transfer the frosting to a piping bag to decorate the cookies
    9. Serve and enjoy!
