This low fat treat doesn’t sacrifice flavour for reduced fat. Share with others within a day or so of eating, or freeze, as the lower fat level affects keeping quality.
Whole Wheat Scones
For Christmas cookies, use your favourite cookie cutter shape - try stars, snowmen, angels or Christmas trees.
Melt in Your Mouth Shortbread Cookies
This fabulously tender shortbread is made in the food processor to ease preparation; be careful though as over processing dough will cause the dough to become greasy and the butter will melt out as they bake.
Mincemeat Pinwheel Cookies
Pinwheel cookies are a Christmas classic. This version uses pre-rolled puff pastry as the dough, and seasonal mincemeat as the filling. Much easier than the traditional version with two colours of home-made cookie dough stacked and rolled.
Jam Thumbprint Cookies
Thumbprint cookies are a holiday tradition, and look great on a dessert tray. Substitute another type of nut, if you prefer.
Chocolate Cherry Brownie Cookies
Melted chocolate makes this drop cookie extra delicious. Look for dried cherries in the bulk area of the grocery store.
Dirt and Worms Ice Cream Brownie Cake
Gummy worms “crawl” out of this disgustingly delicious dirt cake. Great as a birthday cake or for any other kids’ celebration.
Raspberry Crumble Bars
Be kind to the environment and feel good about dessert with this easy bar made with organic ingredients. Crunchy, fruity, buttery and nutty- something for everyone.
Pot of Gold Cupcakes
A green-tinted treat for some lucky leprechauns. Boxed cake mix and a tub of frosting make them a snap.
Applesauce Bran Loaf
Applesauce is the secret to keeping this quick loaf moist, while keeping the fat down.
