Sugar Free Cut Out Cookies

My inspiration In Katrina's Kitchen

My real inspiration is my sister. She's diabetic and loves sugar cookies. Kind of an oxy moron! This recipe is tasty and no chilling required! Who can't use a time saver?

I get my Xylitol on Amazon. I can't find it at the market. It's pricey but worth it to produce good quality sugar free goodies without the aftertaste.

Ingredients

     1 cup butter, softened, I always use salted
     1 cup Xylitol put through blender (Xylitol is toxic to dogs so be extremely careful if you have pets)
     1 tsp vanilla
     1/2 tsp almond, optional
     1 egg
     1/2 tsp salt
     2 tsp baking powder
     3 cups flour
     2-3 tsp heavy cream

Directions

Preheat oven to 350.
