Ingredients

Frosting:

  • 1 Tablespoon Butter Softened
  • 1 Tablespoon Gentle Sweet
  • 3 Tablespoons Heavy Whipping Cream

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream softened butter, Gentle Sweet and stevia extract.
  • Add egg and molasses and mix well.
  • Add remaining ingredients and mix until blended.
  • Using a cookie scoop, place cookies on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and flatten slightly with your fingers.
  • Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely.

For Frosting:

  • Mix softened butter, Gentle Sweet and heavy whipping cream with a hand mixer until just beginning to stiffen - about 1 minute.
  • Spread 2-3 Teaspoons of frosting on each cookie.
  • Store cookies in the refrigerator.

Notes

If you do not want to use the molasses, you may omit it and use 1 teaspoon caramel extract in its place, but the results will not be the same. The 2 teaspoons of molasses add 7 grams of carbs to the entire recipe, which is less than .5 gram per cookie.
