Introduction

Turn low-cal sugar cookies into a Halloween treat! Turn low-cal sugar cookies into a Halloween treat!
Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1 cup heart-healthy margarine
    1-1/2 cups white sugar (or sugar substitute)
    1/2 cup egg beaters
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 teaspoon lemon extract
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 pinch salt
    48 almonds

Tips

Tint your cookie dough with green food coloring. "Paint" the almond "fingernails" with a thin glaze tinted with green or red food coloring. Use a toothpick to draw knuckle lines.


Directions

1. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and lemon extracts. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; gradually blend into the creamed mixture to form a soft dough. Cover or wrap dough, and refrigerate overnight.
2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). On a floured surface, roll the dough out 1/4 inch thick. Slice into strips and roll between your hands to form finger shapes. Press an almond into the end of each cookie. Place cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
3. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.

Makes 48 servings (1 serving = 1 cookie).
