Tips & Tricks

To decorate your cookies, you can simply sprinkle them with powdered sweetener or, even better, make sugarless “sugar” cookie glazing:

  1. Beat 1 egg white with 1 cup of powdered erythritol.
  2. Divide into four equal parts and color each part with desired food coloring.
  3. Pipe the glazing onto cookies and let the glazing become firm before serving.
