Holiday Linzer Tarts
(no ratings)

This cookie is a holiday tradition in our family. This recipe is not usually low in calories, fat or sugar. However, I have altered this recipe to be lower in all of those things, especially the sugar. This is a good sized cookie so one indulgence is enough! Enjoy!

Two Thumbs-Up Holiday Cookies
(no ratings)

These cookies get two thumbs up in terms of nutrition!

Thumbprint cookies are a tradition during the holidays, but this one offers extra nutrients, lower fat and great flavor.

This recipe uses some ingredients that might be new to you. Spelt flour is available in small bags in the baking aisle at large grocery stores, and agave nectar is found at health food stores or online. (Some larger supermarkets might also carry it.) Agave nectar is a natural sweetener that has a lower glycemic index than sugar, but you can sub honey.

You may substitute your favorite low-fat granola cereal for the Ezekiel 4:9, but be sure the granola does not contain any fruit, which will affect the texture of the cookie. I used a Superfruit Spread from Trader Joe's, but a fruit-juice sweetened preserve will work just as well. Because spelt takes some time to absorb liquid, it is best to refrigerate this dough overnight.

This recipe was created by Patricia Huller C.C.E., M.Ed., a culinary instructor and healthy baking expert from Cincinnati State's Midwest Culinary Institute, especially for SparkRecipes.

Very Good 4.3/5
(12 ratings)

This is a wholesome chewy cookie that satisfies the sweet tooth, but isn't just empty calories--it's a great way to incorporate whole grains. Substitute a multi-grain mix for added nutrition and fiber. Add mini chocolate chips, raisins, nuts, or coconut for variation.
