But I totally did. These puppies are gluten free, dairy free and are sweetened only with honey. Wanna know something else? They taste just like traditional sugar cookies! I was worried they wouldn't be right- that they would taste off, or stick to the cookie cutters or fall apart after cooking. All of that worry for nothing- they were awesome! The only thing missing now is some healthy-ish icing to top them. I'll be sharing the icing recipe tomorrow so check back in! (Update: you can checkout the icing recipe here.)
No-Sugar Christmas Cookies
½ cup honey
Slowly add flour mixture while mixer is running.
Divide dough into two balls and place one on a piece of parchment paper and flatten with your hands.
Remove surrounding dough using your fingers or a knife. The colder the dough, the easier this is.
Bake for 7-9 minutes until edges are brown.
Repeat process with remaining dough. You'll want to re-chill the dough you pull up off of the parchment before rolling again. I found the freezer helpful for these mini-chill sessions.
For a crispier cookie, allow edges to brown more, cooking for about 9-10 minutes. For a chewier cookie, cook for only 6-8 minutes.
These didn't even get iced today but they were a huge hit. I didn't have to feel bad about the kids having seconds (ok, thirds) since they were packed with protein and healthy fats!
