    Simple Spice Cookies Recipe

    The cookie jar was empty and I wanted some cookies to go with my coffee; but I wanted to hold the amount of sugar down a little bit so I decided on this Simple Spice Cookies Recipe. This recipe uses a granulated no calorie sweetener which I have used in the past and it is a very good sugar substitute. If you don’t like using sugar substitutes; I am sure sugar would also work very well. This is a simple recipe with very little prep or baking time-you can have cookies on the table in less than a half an hour. The number of cookies this recipe produces will depend on the size of the cookie dough balls you make to create the cookies. I wound up with 16, but the recipe says it should make 30.

    If you find your cookie jar getting empty, give yourself a treat, and bake up a batch of these Spice Cookies; they’re really good.
