Fat Free Sugar Chistmas Cookies

I know another sugary treat post!  This one is special I promise!  After many many tries at perfecting the fat-free cookie we have finally NAILED IT!  These are so good you'd swear there was a half a cup of butter in them.  Kristin ate the soy yogurt I bought to test as a fat replacement so I scrounged around the kitchen for anything else and found some pumpkin maple butter (just pumpkin puree and sugar) and Ginger Spread.  Best sugar cookies you'll ever have!

Here's the ingredient round up.
Pure Pantry Sugar Cookie Mix(Gluten/dairy/soy/nut free)
Stonewall Kitchen Maple Pumpkin Butter
Ginger People Ginger Spread
India Tree Natural Food Coloring
India Tree colored sugar sprinkles
Shadey Farms Maple Butter
Festive Cookie Cutters
Fancy Baking mat
Maple Butter works insanely well for icing.  A few drops of food coloring and you're in business. 

I put the new pistachio KitchenAid Mixer to work. (not supposed to have opened this until Xmas!  Good thing my mom never reads our blog :( 
 Reserve about a 1/2 cup of the mix to flour your rolling surface.
All you need to do is add about half of the pumpkin butter and tablespoon of the ginger jelly (optional) and mix until a dough.  You might need to add a few tablespoons of rice milk or water so the dough picks up all the sugar.  Just eyeball the pumpkin butter, adding more as needed.  The mix calls for 1/2 cup of butter so that amount of pumpkin butter is what we're aiming for.

Roll it out using the 1/2 cup of mix you reserved!  Its STICKY so flour your surface well.
Cut out your shapes and transfer to your parchment paper lined baking tray.
Bake at 350 for 10 to 12 minutes or until they start to brown on top.
Stir up your icing and spread it on and add sprinkles.

Amaze everyone!  They are VEGAN - FAT FREE - SOY FREE - GLUTEN FREE - NUT FREE - and simply the best Xmas cookies I've ever had or made!

Those look soooo good! I was just wondering what fat-free soy yogurt you were going to use as a replacement, because I have been having trouble finding fat free soy yogurts?

Actually there aren't any fat free soy yogurts that I know of, the soy bean is one of the highest fat content beans. I usually get the plain since it has the least amount of sugar.
