While we rarely offer a recipe that contains wheat flour, these do. Sugar cookies can be fragile, so in order to have a really good, sugar-free cookie, we allowed the use of wheat flour. We believe that these cookies can be an acceptable alternative to the standard, sugar-filled seasonal favorite. These cookies are sweetened with Swerve and there is no aftertaste! You can serve these to the whole family with confidence that everyone will enjoy them.
(Note that Granulated Swerve is used in the cookie but Confectioner’s Swerve is used for the icing.)
