This version is so simple you don't even need the oven - you can leave out the liqueur and use an additional tablespoon of preserves for added moisture.
These are the Christmas Cookies that were always in a big tin on my grandmothers kitchen table. I remember baking them with my mother every year and even though she's gone, these are the holiday memories I hope you are making with someone that you love. They are also delicious, flaky and sugar free!
Classic buttery Christmas cookies. In my home, the holiday does not arrive with out this cookie! Truvia turns out a delicious and sugar free version for all to enjoy.
These are a blast to make! I picked up holiday candy moulds at Joannes Fabrics for two dollars and could not believe how great they turned out. Really perfect and FUN. I made them, then I ate them. Yummy.
I have a small 1 tablespoon 'ice cream' scoop that makes perfectly portioned cookies for this recipe. Nothing beats the wholesomeness of a homemade, four ingredient recipe.
I have a bag of Pecan Meal in my freezer procured on a trip to a Pecan Grove in Georgia last fall that feature a touch of Southern Pecan goodness. You can choose any flavor of Jam you would like, I had half a jar of Smuckers Sugar Free Strawberry! So I made Strawberry Jam Bars in my kitchen.
A truly spectacular holiday or special occasion dessert that really is not that difficult if you follow the steps to create the components and then assemble. Its the worlds best 'no bake' dessert. Yep, its got some calories, but its as low sugar as a fab dessert can be.
These melt in your mouth!
Popovers are crisp on the outside, hollow and delicate on the inside – and not too sweet. Best served hot from the oven; don't worry if your popover centers collapse as that is typical.
Want to really WOW people this Holiday Season?
Stop using Cool Whip and that whipped cream in a can.
Something about a Cherry Cheesecake screams Merry Christmas to me! I make this for our holiday dinner every year.
Everyone will love these. Using almond meal in place of flour keeps the carbs low and makes these cookies gluten free as well! Make a batch to take to a holiday party or cookie exchange.
Perfect for no sugar dessert lovers, these spiced pumpkin soft cookies made with the Truvía are sandwiched with no sugar cream cheese frosting. Wonderful for holiday sharing with family and friends. Make 12 whoopee pies.
Saturday was my nephews birthday and my sister in law spent a great deal of time making her ‘Paleo Carrot Cake’ so we could *ALL* celebrate with cake. Her cake was beautiful and made with lots of love, BUT its a sugar bomb.
I have a sweet tooth and this is one of the best tasting desserts I make. Plus you can't beat the calorie and carb count at near zero. Get out your glass bowl so you can learn 10 Minute Speed Set!
If you love fresh tart puckery lemon, then you will love this simple sugar free lemon pudding. It is one of Ty's favorites.
First Fall Applesauce... make your own!
Is there anything better than a silky smooth dessert that you don't have to bake? No, there really isn't!
This is a protein rich creamy egg and ricotta custard posing as a dessert. It makes a wonderful breakfast lunch supper, or TV watching family 'dessert'. I love this dish!
Desserts are impossible to avoid - no one wants to sit without a plate while everyone eats dessert after a holiday meal... for the rest of their life.
Just because we had surgery does not mean we have to forgo occasional sweets, as long as they do not have added sugar and are in line with our new way of life. These fit the bill!
Voila, a smaller batch of goodness that is very easy and quick to make. Lightly brushing warm freshly baked doughnut holes with melted butter and rolling them in Cinnamon and Truvia keeps them soft and moist. They melt in your mouth! I even piped a few with a dab of sugar-free grape jelly. A wonderful Holiday dessert treat.
These are a crowd-pleaser for any special occasion and will be sure to put a smile on everyone's faces!
All I have to say is wow! Serve this after a special occasion dinner and blow everyone's mind.
This one is so good, you will be famous for it. People will ask you IF YOU ARE BRINGING YOUR CHEESECAKE. Trust me.
They are sweet and chewy and have zero sugar and lots of flavor. I make them in silicon molds and after an hour in the fridge they pop right out. They are shiny and beautiful and it doesn't matter if you eat every. single. one. of. them.
The BEST No Sugar Apple on the Planet. Old Fashioned Apple Pie to serve to everyone who comes to Thanksgiving dinner at your home, or take to your Grandmothers for the holiday dessert table. The best part is that it is INSANELY good and no one will explode from sugar alcohols or think there is anything but love baked into this beauty.
While sitting with my mothers sister Gail, who is a fabulous cook, she proclaimed 'Susan, this is the best pie I've ever had!' Wow, what a compliment!
I use Splenda as it works well in custards. No need to reinvent the wheel here folks. This is simple goodness at its best. Make this with a crust OR WITHOUT depending on your use. My husband does not think it is PIE unless it has crust, so for holidays I make this pie using a Pillsbury All Ready Crust and it looks super homemade. (gasp, I would never use a frozen stamped crust.)
This one is so good, you will be famous for it. People will ask IF YOU ARE BRINGING YOUR CHEESECAKE. Trust me. Never has something so simple gathered so much attention and applause. Plus its sugar free. Boom.
Bobby Flay provided the base recipe but I have reduced and swapped out the sugar and part of the flour. It has no added sugar and is reduced carbohydrate. Its not calorie free but its a super moist and really flavorful pumpkin loaf to bake for your Thanksgiving celebration.
The Thanksgiving dish for a new Post Op or old Post Op or ANYONE for that matter. Just wonderful soft creamy pumpkin pie filling. Guild the lily with a squirt of Land O Lakes Sugar Free Whipped Cream!
Proudly add this Pumpkin Roll to the holiday dessert table and let everyone know it's sugar free and low in calories. Of course it's also Bariatric Friendly & Super Delicious!
Nothing says Thanksgiving like Pumpkin Cheesecake and this one just happens to be sugar free.
The BEST no cook recipe on the planet. A big bowl of fluffy pumpkin spiced mousse that tastes like it took substantial effort... super delish, super easy and no one will ever know its sugar free! Serve in wine glasses. Use a plastic bag with the corner cut off to get it in there neatly! Place three Murray Sugar Free Butter Cookies on the plate for a little texture and good looks.
Smooth dark flavors of late Fall!
This is perfect for an evening dessert on our patio! It is lemony, super moist and really delicious. My husband loves a slice of this cake with berries and whipped cream! Try it.
A very rich tart that's perfect for a holiday. Serve a small slice with a few fresh raspberries for a beautiful dessert.
This Italian dessert is a light spoonful of soft gelled pudding that instantly melts into an explosion of smooth cream when it hits your tongue.
On days we play golf with other couples, I sometimes make a no sugar sweet - just a simple brownie or cake I can serve with a scoop of Breyers No Sugar Vanilla.
These brownies are over the edge for rich fudgy flavor and they are high in protein and low in carbs as they do not contain flour! They are actually healthy, but you don't want to tell anyone that. People judge.
After a quick roast, the berries have the most wonderful concentrated strawberry flavor and thick sweet natural syrup.
Make both desserts ahead of time and using a small ice cream scoop sandwich a scoop between two little cookies. People will gobble them up before you can create a full tray!
Do not tell anyone how you made this or that it is made with a box of Sugar Free Jello Pudding mix. A simple yet impressive holiday dessert or birthday pie! My husband LOVES LOVES LOVES this pie.
Follow the recipe step by step and you'll be proud of this wonderful dessert - and the smiles on everyone's faces.
They are a perfect nibble to make when you need a plate of festive sweets to share at a gathering of family, friends or office folk. It is nice to be a part of the group and NOT sabotage your path to goal.
