Cut-Out Sugar Cookies with Icing – Low Carb, sodium reduced (http://alldayidreamaboutfood.com/2012/10)
SPARK does not figure in the low carb accurately, with the sugar alcohol - net 3.2 grams carbs/cookie.
3/16 The original title of this recipe has been rewritten - original "Halloween cut-out..." These are thicker than I would expect and in no way remind me of a sugar cookie. I think they are really best with icing. Melissa and Davis really like! They've "grown" on me.
I am listing the Icing recipe separately as well.
"Perhaps I shouldn’t call these sugar cookies, since they don’t have a single grain of sugar in them. False advertising and all that.....
A few words of note about the frosting. Mine is made with confectioner’s Swerve, and it worked out fairly well. But I have learned that if my butter isn’t properly softened before I add the Swerve, it gets a little bit of a clumpy texture that no amount of beating will smooth out. My impatience took over in this case…my butter was close to soft but not quite there, and my frosting was a tiny bit on the grainy side. ...
Gluten-free cut-out cookies
And what matters most is the taste, right? These were fantastic. ... I am not a huge fan of sugar cookies, but these tasted EXACTLY like you’d expect. A low carb, gluten-free cut out cookie that rivals the conventional version. What more can you ask for?"Submitted by: ALILDUCKLING
