We had some friends over a few nights ago for a small intimate Christmas party. We knew because of time restraints this would be our last time to get together before Christmas.

I decided I wanted to make something that was in the holiday spirit but something that consisted of less sugar because one of my friends is trying to lose a few pounds before the holidays. I wanted her to be able to have a few cookies without feeling too guilty.

Instead of sugar I added Swerve Sweetener to the recipe instead of sugar and Swerve Confectioners’ Sugar in the icing instead of traditional confectioners’ sugar.

These cookies turned out delicious and no one had a clue they were eating guilt free cookies. Have you tried Swerve? If not get a Free Sample Here!
