25 Days of Christmas Cookies: DAY 18: Sugar Free Cinnamon Sugar Pinwheels

546537_4339127711318_2119514553_nSo many cookies… so many calories! I wanted to make a cookie that didn’t make you feel as guilty. These cookies are made with Splenda… Not regular sugar, cutting a lot of calories.

START!

After the cookies are in the refrigerator, preheat your oven to 400 degrees

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper

INGREDIENTS

–          4 ounces of cream cheese (softened)

–          1 stick of butter (softened)

–          1 ¼ cups of flour

–          Pinch of salt

–          ¼ cup of Splenda (or Truvia)

–          2 tablespoons of cinnamon

With a stand mixer or hand mixer, mix together the butter and cream cheese. Incorporate the flour and mix. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

After an hour, flour your rolling pin and the surface you will roll the dough on. Roll the dough to about ¼ inch thickness. Combine the cinnamon and sugar in a bowl, and dump on the cookie dough. Spread the cinnamon sugar evenly and start rolling the dough!

Start from one end; roll the dough into a log. Put the dough into the refrigerator for another hour.

Once it has chilled (this makes it easy to cut), cut the cookies to ½ an inch thickness.

I cut mine smaller…. And I wish I hadn’t, so ½ an inch thickness would be good! Place the cookies on the cookie sheet about ½ an inch apart. Bake for 10-13 minutes

Cool and enjoy!
