My cousin Tabitha Vavrick sells AVON on the internet and in September I bought these Halloween cookie cutters. They were very inexpensive and I love cookies, so I bought them. I posted on Facebook that I was going to make them with Sweet N Low instead of sugar because of my blood sugar issue, but people warned me against it and told me to use Splenda instead, but I can’t use Splenda because it gives me the worst stomach cramps. They told me to use Stevia and that it turns out gives me something I won’t discuss here since we are talking about food lol.
I decided that I would just go ahead and use sugar despite my problem with being a diabetic, but those same people warned me against using the recipe that came with the cookie cutters. I don’t know why I let people talk me into alternative things. They told me to find the Paula Deen sugar cookie recipe, which I did and I made and the cookies were awful. I mixed all of the ingredients right and they just didn’t taste very good.
That was a month ago and a few days ago I wanted to try it again, but this time using the recipe that came with the cookie cutters. I did it, and it was wonderful. I don’t mean to give any secrets away by posting this recipe card, but they sell other cookie cutters that don’t even come with a recipe (their 3D Christmas Tree cookie cutters) so I figured that if someone bought that, they would want a good recipe, and this one is the best.
I have had sugar cookies my entire life and they don’t taste like this recipe, probably because the recipe that the professionals use has sugar on top of the cookies and these don’t. That makes the cookies sweeter, these don’t need that extra sweetness because they are awesome on their own.
You could decorate them if you wanted to, but that would just add more sugar to it and I’ve tried coloring cookies before, it’s not good lol. The cookies taste awesome alone without any extra sugar on top.
If you wanted to buy some of these or other cookie cutters, buy them from my cousin Tabitha Vavrick. They have some great prices on a lot of their products.
I can’t wait for December so I can make the 3D Christmas Tree Cookies with this recipe.
