Skinny Iced Sugar Cookies

I made Skinny Iced Sugar Cookies because I couldn’t help myself any longer. Why? Let me explain.

I do it every time. Those luscious, melt-in-your-mouth sugar cookies propped perfectly in the bakery aisle, poking their round, fat eyes out at you, crying, “Pick me. Choose me. Love me” in their best Meredith Grey voice. They’re the John Hardy of on-the-go indulgence. And they’re a bucket of calories. As always, I didn’t like that. So I changed that.Skinny Iced Sugar Cookies by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog. Skinny Iced Sugar Cookies by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.

As always, you could use clear icing, red icing, yellow icing, blue icing. I just happened to be in the mood for yellow sugar cookies. How come? Admittedly, it was the only food dye I could find in my basket of baking goodies 🙂Skinny Iced Sugar Cookies by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.

    These look amazing. Ha e you ever tried using coconut sugar instead of sweetener? I’m trying not to use any artifical sweeteners currently. What would you recommend?

      Corrine, great question. Truvia (or stevia) actually is not an artificial sweetener, but rather a novel sweetener. But I totally get what you’re saying. I actually like the taste of some sugar alcohols, such as erythritol, maltitol and xylitol, but too much in one sitting can cause a pretty bad stomach ache (or so I’ve read). Of course, that’s probably how it is with most sugars, right? I do love Maltitol, such as Joseph’s Maltitol Sweetener. Right now, I have to say it’s my favorite to work with as far as flexibility goes. I’m actually a fan of dates, though working with them is somewhat of a pain, IMO. Many people disagree – perhaps I’m too much of a baby 😉 But coconut sugar I have not tried. I hear very great things. If you give it a go, please let me know how you like it 🙂

        Thanks for the reply! I was told by my doctor that Truvia is artificial and made by Pepsi and that Stevia is the only non artificial? Is that incorrect?

          Truvia is actually made with Stevia 🙂 This is what their website says: “The best sweetness comes from nature. Truvía® sweetener is natural, great-tasting sweetness born from the leaves of the stevia plant.”

      Hi there! 🙂
      I believe you can, though I’m not familiar with it. If the texture is more coarse, I would consider adding a little bit less sour cream than suggested to start, or simply adding more flour to the recipe until you get the consistency of cookie dough!
