Many hours on Pinterest led me these! Of course, I had to make them slightly different and use much more fun sprinkles.
I suppose you could make them with Splenda, but why? The Candy Cane Kiss in the middle pretty much negates the effort. But – I did use whole wheat flour for 90% of my holiday baking this year.
The dough and cookies are a little “grainier” than normal, but everything tastes the same, really. I’m sure it all breaks down to about the same carb count in the end, but at least it’s a bit slower.
