One of everyone’s favorite things to do during the holidays is to make Christmas cookies! From Kiss Cookies to Gobstoppers, there’s bound to be a Christmas cookie everyone has to have. One of my favorites is Classic Spritz Cookies!

Classic Spritz Cookies are a great way to add variety to your cookie trays this year!

Classic Spritz Cookies are the perfect Christmas Cookie that is easy to make and very versatile. Make them plain, with sprinkles, covered in icing or dipped in chocolate. They’re good any way you make them. Classic Spritz Cookies are an easy way to add variety to a tray of cookies. A cookie press lets you change disks to produce many different shapes. They are so delicious and Classic Spritz Cookies are the definition of Christmas Cookies in my book.

This year I made a batch using a sugar substitute and they turned out great! SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener enables people to experience the joy of sugar without all of the calories so you can continue to enjoy foods you love and feel good about the choices you’re making.

SPLENDA No Calorie Sweetener

SPLENDA® Sweetener Products can be used almost anywhere sugar is used, including cooking and baking. Swapping one cup of sugar with one cup of SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated, can save more than 600 calories. By replacing three tablespoons of sugar per day with SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, you can save almost 130 calories per day – which especially a good thing this time of year when we’re spending a lot of time baking up holiday treats!
