Preparation

Preheat oven to 350

Mix all ingredients well until it comes together into a dough. On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, place with a spoon, roll into balls, or set your favorite cookie cutter on the paper and press a little dough into the cutter and gently lift up. This takes a little longer but makes for perfectly shaped cookies.

Bake about 12 to 14 minutes, until the edges just begin to darken. If you would like to sprinkle cinnamon sugar mix on top or dust with powdered sugar, do so while cookies are hot!

Guilt Free Yum!
