sugar cookies, and much less sugar. For best results, chill the
dough thoroughly and work fast when rolling the cookies.
cake flour 2 1/4 cups
baking powder 1/2 tsp
salt 1/4 tsp
unsalted stick margarine or butter, softened 1/4 cup
granulated sugar 1/2 cup
firmly packed light brown sugar 2 Tbsp
egg 1 ea
light corn syrup 1 tsp
vanilla extract 1 1/2 tsp
powdered sugar 1 cup
hot water 5 Tbsp
vanilla, orange, or lemon extract 1/8 tsp
food coloring (optional) 2 drops
1 In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and
2 In a large bowl, with an electric mixer at medium speed, beat
the margarine, granulated sugar, and brown sugar together until
fluffy, 2 minutes. Beat in the egg, corn syrup, and vanilla until
smooth, 1 minute.
3 Add the flour mixture to the margarine mixture in thirds, until
the dough becomes smooth and stiff. Divide the dough in half and
wrap in plastic wrap. Chill thoroughly, at least 2 hours.
4 Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Arrange the oven racks to divide
the oven into thirds. Spray 2 baking sheets with nonstick cooking
5 Working with one piece at a time (and keeping the remaining piece
in the refrigerator), roll the dough between 2 sheets of plastic
wrap to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into shapes with a 2-inch cookie
cutter and place on the prepared baking sheet. Reroll and reuse
the dough scraps. Repeat with the remaining dough.
6 Bake until barely golden along the edges, 8-10 minutes, rotating
the baking sheets halfway through to ensure even baking. Let cool
1 minute, then transfer the cookies to a rack.
7 To make the icing, in a small bowl, combine the powdered sugar,
2 Tbsp of the hot water, and the vanilla, orand, or lemon extract;
stir until smooth. If the icing is too think, add a few more drops
of water. Color with food coloring if desired. When the cookies
are completely cool, decorate with icing.
|Betty Crocker's Diabetes Cookbook: Everyday Meals, Easy as 1-2-3
At last! This special cookbook puts flavor and choice back on the menu for people with diabetes and their families
Betty Crocker, America's most trusted friend in the kitchen, has teamed up with the International Diabetes Center (IDC)--one of the leading medical centers--to create an indispensable source of easy-to-make recipes and up-to-the-minute food and nutrition information for the growing numbers of people who have diabetes, more than 15 million of them.
Here is the first cookbook to include recipes featuring Carbohydrate Choices--the new, simplified approach to meal planning recommended by the American Diabetes Association. For people who find diet exchanges too hard, too limiting or too much work, this new method is a real breakthrough. Each of the book's 140 recipes shows the number of Carbohydrate Choices per serving, so that planning the rest of the meal is easy. From Old-Time Beef and Vegetable Stew to Creamy Vanilla-Caramel Cheesecake, the recipes are made with everyday ingredients, including sugar. No food groups or ingredients are left out, so there's no need for anyone to feel deprived or restricted to a special diet. Food exchanges are also included, making it easy for those who still count calories.
Betty Crocker's Diabetes Cookbook is also packed with expert medical and nutrition tips from Dr. Richard Bergenstal, an endocrinologist and diabetes doctor, and two registered nurses--invaluable for the newly diagnosed as well as for those who have been coping with diabetes for years. Throughout the book, real-life advice from people who have diabetes offers inspiration and great ideas on dealing with this chronic disease. When it comes to eating and living with diabetes, people need guidance and advice they can trust. Click here to buy

|The 4-Ingredient Diabetes Cookbook: Simple, Quick, and Delicious Recipes Using Just 4 Ingredients or Less
Hughes, author of cookbooks health-minded (The 1200-Calory-A-Day Menu Cookbook) and otherwise (The New Chili Cuisine) pulls off a challenging trick in her latest, devising more than 100 tasty recipes with only four ingredients that also satisfy the American Diabetes Association's dietary guidelines. When limiting ingredients, the first casualty is depth of flavor, but Hughes employs a variety of tricks to correct this, like lemon zest in Greek Chicken with Lemon or onion soup mix in Homestyle Double-Onion Roast; elsewhere, packaged chili spice mix meets varying degrees of success. Bacon-Onion Potato Salad, which relies on reduced-fat Ranch dressing, is a rare miss, but the hits more than make up: Seared Chicken with Spicy Chipotle Cream Sauce, Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Cinnamon and Bourbon'd Filet Mignon-its rich sauce made with a deglaze of strong coffee-all beg for a turn. Nutritional and exchange information is supplied for each dish, and Hughes thoughtfully rounds out the book with useful all-purpose tips, like using low-carb vegetables to boost the volume of starchy dishes, adding instant coffee to deepen chocolate flavors and substituting equal amounts of cauliflower for potatoes. Those on a restricted diet will appreciate this wide range of simple dishes, as well as tips and tricks for enhancing everyday staples.
