Sweet as Sugar & as Naughty as Egg Nog Holiday Cookie Recipe with Splenda!

One of my favorite parts of celebrating the holiday season is all the sweets involved. From chocolate covered everything to super sweet sugar cookies, I'm loving being able to share the spirit of the holidays with delicious dessert recipes! While I love real sugar, I know that my body holds onto it forever and ever, so I try to limit myself... luckily, that's where SPLENDA® comes into the picture.

I know you've heard of SPLENDA® whether you've had it in your coffee or tried it in a recipe - it's a brand we all know and love and the cookie recipe I'm sharing today is one inspired by the brand.
The original recipe (found here) is actually really easy to follow but since I like to mix things up, I added my own little touch to the cookies - adding a delicious Egg Nog icing and instead of baking them with real flour, I opted to make my cookies gluten-free with coconut flour!
