I love sugar and soda, but have really been trying to eliminate extra sugar from mine and my kids’ diet. It is often hard to do, but I like us easting a little healthier and a little more of natural foods. We have been adding more fruits and vegetables. I usually cut strawberries and sprinkle a little sugar on them, but I tried out NECTRESSE™Sweetener and was thrilled with the taste. My children didn’t even notice I hadn’t used the normal sugar. I loved that it didn’t have a funny aftertaste and was providing our family with a 100% natural, no calorie sweetener. It is the only 100% natural sweetener made from fruit – monk fruit extract. It is now available where you shop.
My kids and I enjoy baking together especially trying out new fun, creative desserts for holidays and birthdays. I always try to make homemade desserts for their birthdays because it is cheaper and a little healthier by using the ingredients I wish in baking. This weekend we decided to make some sugar cookie creations and yes we added some food coloring for fun, but we used NECTRESSE™ Sweetener instead of sugar. They still had a great taste. I am so excited to have a healthy alternative for my family. My son made a green man and enjoyed decorating, but I didn’t feel so bad about him eating more than one.

Here's my recipe – you should give it a try:
I added food coloring to make different colors in batter
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar—used Nutresse instead
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tablespoon milk
- Powdered sugar, for rolling out dough
Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. Place butter and sugar in large bowl of electric stand mixer and beat until light in color. Add egg and milk and beat to combine. Put mixer on low speed, gradually add flour, and beat until mixture pulls away from the side of the bowl. Divide the dough in half, wrap in waxed paper, and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Sprinkle surface where you will roll out dough with powdered sugar. Remove 1 wrapped pack of dough from refrigerator at a time, sprinkle rolling pin with powdered sugar, and roll out dough to 1/4-inch thick. Move the dough around and check underneath frequently to make sure it is not sticking. If dough has warmed during rolling, place cold cookie sheet on top for 10 minutes to chill. Cut into desired shape, place at least 1-inch apart on greased baking sheet, parchment, or silicone baking mat, and bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until cookies are just beginning to turn brown around the edges, rotating cookie sheet halfway through baking time. Let sit on baking sheet for 2 minutes after removal from oven and then move to complete cooling on wire rack.
