Simple Stevia S Cookies

Simple Stevia S Cookies

When I was growing up, my mom always made the most delicious Italian cookies for Christmas. My favorite were her S cookies with a tasty glaze on top. This year, I decided to make a sweeter, vanilla-flavored version of the cookies for the holidays.

While traditional S cookies are delectable, you can also try a lower calorie version. Some people think the traditional cookies are tart because of its almond flavoring. With this version, it keeps the unique S shape but adds a sweeter flavor.

A Twist On A Classic Italian Favorite

To make a lower calorie version, you can use SweetLeaf Sweet Drops, a natural sweetener that comes in a Vanilla Creme Flavor. I replaced 3/4 cup of sugar with only 3/4 teaspoon of liquid concentrate for a small, guilt-free batch that you and your family can devour in one day.

When you make the cookies, they have a sweet, vanilla flavor that is different from the traditional almond flavor.

For a sweet cookie, create a powdered sugar frosting and for the sprinkles. While there are stevia-based powdered sugar products, this recipe uses traditional powdered sugar.

Although the traditional S cookie is spectacular, this was a nice lower calorie, sweet version.

Simple Stevia S Cookies Recipe

To make the cookies, I used my mother’s original recipe, but I cut the recipe size into one-third of what she called for, and then I substituted the sugar for the stevia.

Ingredients for the Frosting

  • 1 tsp. butter
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. milk
