Christmas Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting

  

October 13, 2016

Christmas cookies are traditionally sugar cookies though other flavors may be used based on family traditions and individual preferences. Christmas cookies are cut into various shapes related to Christmas. Since the 1930s, children have left cookies and milk on a table for Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, though many people simply consume the cookies themselves. But check this out... while seemingly harmless these cookies can be loaded with sugar leading to Santa's Type II diabetes and our big fat Santa like bellys. Here's a recipe that cuts out the sugar but leaves all the flavor of this Holiday favorite.
