Default 1 pt - No Bake Sugar Plums

2 cups almonds, whole
1/4 cup honey
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg or grated
1 cup chopped dried apricots
1 cup pitted dates finely chopped
1 cup confectioner's sugar

Preheat oven to 400 F

Arrange almonds on a baking sheet in a single layer and toast in oven
for 10 minutes. Cool and finely chop (or use food processor).

Meanwhile, combine honey, orange zest, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Add almonds, apricots and dates - mix well. Pinch off rounded teaspoon size pieces of the mixture and roll into balls. (Rinse your hands
often, as mixture tends to be sticky). Roll balls in sugar then refrigerate in single layers between 2 layers of wax paper in airtight containers for up to one month.

Makes about 75 bon bons, at 1 pt. each
Nutrional information per bon bon: 30.8 cal, 0.8g fat, 0.5g fibre

Default Holiday sugar cookies

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup reduced-calorie margarine, at room temperature
1 large egg(s), lightly beaten
1/4 cup light corn syrup
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp ground cardamom, if desired
2 large egg whites
2 cup powdered sugar, lightly packed

In a large bowl with a mixer on medium, beat sugar and margarine together until crumbly. Add 1 egg, corn syrup, lemon juice and vanilla; beat until smooth and pale in color.

In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cardamom. Slowly beat flour mixture into margarine mixture until blended. Divide dough into four equal parts and flatten each quarter to form a round. Wrap each in plastic; refrigerate 30 minutes or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350F.

Lightly spray baking sheet(s) with cooking spray. On a lightly floured board roll out one round to 1/4-1/8 inch thickness. With a lightly floured Christmas tree cookie cutter (about 2 inches tall), cut out cookies and transfer them, about 2 inches apart, to baking sheet(s); repeat with remaining dough.

Bake until golden brown on bottom, 5 to 9 minutes. Remove from the oven; cool completely.

For Royal Icing:

in a large bowl whip egg whites and powdered sugar at low speed until sugar is moistened. Beat at high speed until glossy and stiff peaks form when beaters are lifted, about 6 minutes. Divide icing depending on how many colors you want to use. Add food coloring to achieve desired tint. To decorate cookies place icing in a small plastic bag; snip a tiny hole off one
corner of the bag. Pipe icing onto the cooled cookies to create tree-trimming designs and ornaments.

Tip: you can use colored sugar crystals and other colorful sprinkles instead of the icing

4 points per cookie
Makes 24 cookies
