Holiday Cinnamon Cut-Out Cookies

Very Good 4.0/5
(1 rating)
Holiday Cinnamon Cut-Out Cookies

These cut-out cookies are a stand-in for gingerbread. Their sweet cinnamon taste is a nice change from the strong spices often used in holiday cookies.

Holiday Peppermint Sugar Cookies

I adapted this recipe from the Pillsbury recipe "Peppermint Crunch Cookies". I made my own sugar cookies - Easy Fluffy Sugar Cookies (http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-det
ail.asp?recipe=840741) instead of using their pre-made dough to reduce the calorie count a little.

*These are not necessarily diet friendly. They are a great treat and perfect for holiday parties. This is a fun and easy recipe to make with your kids!*

Holiday Shrimp Salad

Holiday Shrimp Salad

I made this a couple years ago for Thanksgiving and my family has been asking for it again ever since. So I made it for this year's Thanksgiving get-together, but I lightened it up some. I could have bought fat-free or lower-fat mayo too, but it was out of my price range this week! :(

I know it sounds like a really weird combination of ingredients, but it comes out very good!Submitted by: LEAKAY59

Two Thumbs-Up Holiday Cookies

(no ratings)
Two Thumbs-Up Holiday Cookies

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.

Holiday Broccoli Salad for a Crowd

This is a lightened up (lower fat, sugar free) version of an old classic with a few changes for the holidays. It has 1/2 lowfat mayo and 1/2 regular mayo to cut some of the fat. Instead of sugar, I subsituted splenda. For the holidays I substitute dried cranberries in place of raisins and substitute Lite Raspberry Pomegranate Vinaigrette Salad Dressing for some of the apple cider vinegar. This makes a very festive side dish which is great for a holiday brunch, luncheon or dinner.Submitted by: BONNIEBELLE2
