Truly Low Carb Classic Cutout CookiesHappy Holidays!

In my case, that means Merry Christmas, very soon, and 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. I made these first way back in 2001, so they are celebrating a decade this year!
Guilt-free, Gluten-Free, and Sugar-Free with 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!

About Karen

Less than a year after starting a low-carb diet, I was TEN SIZES and SIX HUNDRED cholesterol points lighter! Now, YEARS later, (I am into "decades" now) I STILL love and live a low-carb life! Interests I have TWO grand-angels now, a husband of 24 years, and two kids, one of whom is grown and making those grandbabies (my girl), the other still in school (my boy). I do everything for the office end of my husband's electrical contracting business, as well as everything for my website(s), and am fortunate enough to (read that: I worked my butt off so I could!) live in the beautiful Vail Valley of Colorado. When I can find a spare minute, which isn't that often, I like to ride my big bad motorcycle or ski, depending on the weather.
