Sweet'N Low Spritz Cookies -Lower Calorie Recipe for Cookie Press

These Sweet'N Low Spritz Cookies are a very nice treat that cuts back a bit on sugar and calories. I adapted a recipe that rolled the dough into balls so I could use my cookie press, and have to say I'm very happy with the way it turned out:@) The recipe below has a good vanilla flavor and the cookies are nice and sweet. The flavor could easily be changed up by substituting any flavor extract desired. Since the idea is to cut back on calories, I didn't add any sanding/colored sugar or candy sprinkles to the tops, but I think the snowflakes shape is pretty as is.

 My version of the recipe calls for half of an egg, I just guesstimated it.
If you're concerned about how to measure that, you could either weigh the egg or...
 Make a double batch:@)
Actually, I just read here to sub a medium size egg in recipes that call for half of a large egg.

The discs I used:
Both are Oxo, the one on the left came with the cookie press, right came with the Christmas set of discs.
Sweet'N Low Spritz Cookies-adapted from Sweet'N Low
1/4 C margarine or butter-original recipe calls for margarine, I used butter
1/4 C sugar
1/2 egg, lightly beaten
3/4 tsp vanilla
4 packets Sweet'N Low
1 C A/P bleached flour
1/8 tsp baking powder
  1. Cream margarine/butter and sugar.
  2. Add egg, vanilla and Sweet'N Low, mix well.
  3. Add flour and baking powder (sifted would be nice), mix until incorporated. Mine was crumbly but came together in my hands.
  4. Fill cookie press, press dough onto cool, ungreased cookie sheets.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for 6-8 minutes, or until lightly browned around edges.
  6. Cool on rack, store in airtight container.

  2. The snowflakes look perfect for a wintry cookie, Lynn. Do you like your Oxo cookie press the best? It's good to know that a sugar free cookie turned out great. Thanks for sharing the recipe with us.
