When you have a craving for homemade cookies, it is SO NICE to have a tried and true no-sugar cookie recipe you can turn to. There is something so satisfying about homemade cookies – the way they warm up the house, the incredible aroma of vanilla and baked goods, and having a special treat that makes you feel a little cozier inside.
This recipe starts with Splenda.com’s recipe for No-Sugar Sugar Cookies, with a few modifications, and an enticing and zesty twist. The cookie dough is shaped into balls and then dipped in a Chai Spice mixture before baking.
The alluring aromas of cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, and allspice change the flavor from ordinary sugar cookies into something really special.
These are incredible with tea or coffee – and you won’t miss the sugar in this sweet and spicy recipe! T
Preheat oven to 325° F. Lightly grease a cookie sheet and set aside.
Blend together butters, 1 c. SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener and vanilla in a medium mixing bowl with an electric mixer, or by hand. Blend until butter is softened. Add egg substitute (or egg), water and vinegar. Mix briefly.
In a separate bowl, mix together flours, salt and baking powder. Add flour mixture to the wet ingredients, mixing by hand or by mixer on low speed, until dough is formed. Do not overmix.
Cover dough with plastic wrap. Refrigerate approx. 1 hour, allowing dough to chill. Mix remaining 1/8 c. Splenda with the cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, and allspice, in a small bowl.
Remove dough from refrigerator and roll 1″ dough balls. Roll the dough balls in the spice mixture, then place 2″ apart on the prepared cookie sheet. Use the bottom of a glass to gently flatten the dough balls until they are about 1/4″ thick.
Bake in a preheated 325° F oven 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned on the back. Cool on a wire rack.
