Holiday Party and Cookies

Tonight is my last holiday party for the year i think/hope. It's my friend's yearly holiday party that usually ends up with one of us airing out all our grievances like festivus. For those of you who don't understand this reference... check this out!

This party brings many factions of life/friends together so of course we need food there as well as alcohol. I am trying a new recipe that i got from Skinny Taste except i changed the flour combination for my recipe. 

I am currently in the process of organizing a new routine for my workouts so get excited for the reveal this week.

Skinny Snickerdoodles
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tbsp corn syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tbsp sugar*
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon*
  • cooking spray


Preheat oven to 375°F.  Line two baking sheets with parchemant paper  and spray with cooking spray.

Combine flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk.

Combine 1 cup of sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended.  Add the agave, vanilla and egg; beat well.  Gradually addthe flour mixture to the sugar mixture, beating just until combined.  Cover and chill for 10 minutes.

In a medium bowl, combine 3 tbsp sugar with cinnamon, stirring with a whisk to combine.  With moist hands, shape dough into 1-inch balls.  Roll balls in sugar/cinnamon mixture.

Place balls 2 inches apart onto baking sheets (I slightly flattened them).   

Bake 375°F for 5-7 minutes (cookies will be slightly soft).  Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes.  Remove from pans; cool completely on wire racks.  Enjoy!
