Prep: 15 min. Bake: 10 min./batch

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs, separated

Directions

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks. Gradually add flour and mix well.
Using a cookie press fitted with a bar disk, press dough 1 in. apart into long strips onto ungreased baking sheets. In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; brush over dough.
Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over strips. Cut each strip into 2-in. pieces (there is no need to separate the pieces).

"I was wondering the same thing, I don't have a cookie press. I'll try rolling them out and cutting them into equal portions."

"sincerelysandy -- I'm sure if you ate the ENTIRE 120 serving, it just might NOT be diabetic friendly!!

Read ---- The Nutritional Facts are at the bottom of the recipe directions!!!"

"There is only 7 carbs, and if concerned use a mixture of sugar and Splenda, it bakes well. A cookie press can be found in many .99 cent stores..not professional, but handle ok"

"<p>You really dont need a cookie press...I have made these where I just cut them into bars and bake...just make sure you roll out evenly thin...if you have a pasta machine you can roll out equally thin then score into bars to bake...it is all about the thickness of the bars I think!</p> (with the pasta machine do not use a noodle attachment...just roll out large flat peices of dough that you can trim and score)"

"How can I make this if I don't have a cookie press? They sound yummy with two of my favorite ingredients - cinnamon and almonds."
