  • 3 packets Sweet 'N Low zero calorie sweetener
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons double acting baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon 1% low fat milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon Butter Buds Sprinkles
  • 1/4 cup margarine

Add first 10 ingredients into a medium mixing bowl. With mixer at medium speed, beat until well mixed, occasionally scraping bottom and sides of bowl. Shape dough into ball; wrap in plastic wrap and chill 2 to 3 hours until easy to handle. Preheat oven to 400F. On a lightly floured surface, using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll half the dough at a time. Roll 1/8- to 1/4-inch thickness. Use cookie cutters dipped in flour (prevents sticking) to cut out cookies. Place cookies 1/2-inch apart on a nonstick cookie sheet. Beat egg white with water and brush surface of cookies with mixture. Decorate with choice of toppings. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until very light brown. Remove cookies with spatula to cookie rack to cool.
Hint: Use a straw or toothpick to make holes in cookies before baking. When baked and cooled, tie a colorful string through the hole and hang cookies from tree or wall.
