Classic Cutout Cookies

Originally shared back in 2001 and published in Cooking TLC Volume II in 2004.

While thinking and planning ahead to making old-fashioned sugar cookies with my grandkids, I am also thinking about providing for myself. I can’t be around high-carb goodies all season and not indulge myself with a good workaround. Better a legal indulgence than any all-out cheat, I always say. In the Spirit of the Season, I’d like to share one of my favorite cookies creations with you – I call them “Classic Cutouts” since I can’t bring myself to call them Sugar Cookies. 

Guilt-free, Gluten-Free, and Sugar-Free with just 3 carbs each and a delicate texture and taste that caused my teenage son and his friends to scarf down all of MY cookies last year – in addition to their regular ones! We had some “words” about that, trust me! But I couldn’t help feeling flattered.
These need no icing to be delicious, but a little warmed cream cheese with some vanilla and sweetener and a teaspoon of cream makes a lovely drizzle. I have also used a lemon glaze instead of vanilla, then sprinkled with poppy seeds… MMMMM! Click the link below for the recipe.
