Mint Stuffed Holiday Cookies

Holiday cookies can be so full of sugar, why not try a low sugar substitute? Stevia in the Raw is a zero calorie option that will sweeten your holiday cookies and give you about 700 calories less than traditional sugar. Following a recipe using Stevia will surprise you in how delicious your treats turn out. Mint stuffed cookies are a great option for a low sugar treat. Using 1 cup of butter, brown sugar, stevia, 2 eggs, 2 teaspoons of vanilla and cornstarch, 2 cups of flour, a cup of cocoa, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 24 peppermint mini chocolate candies, and some sprinkles will result in a wonderful minty treat!

Key Takeaways:

  • A key ingredient in the baking of these cookies is “Stevia-in-the-Raw Bakers Bag” that provides the kind of browning and caramelizing that sugar provides with half the sugar you would normally use.
  • The cookies consist of stuffed cookie dough with sprinkles on them. Because they don’t expand out, you can make a lot of them on one baking sheet, enough for a few dozen holiday cookies.
  • The convenience of these cookies, because they are made with a low sweetener, is that they last for a long time. They can easily be frozen and kept in a freezer zip baggie until ready to eat.

“These cookies have the fantastic surprise of mint in the middle as you bite into them.”
