Today’s Kidney Diet Sweets & Treats Holiday Cookbook
Fall into a festive mood by baking a batch of holiday treats. Experience the joy of mixing ingredients, portioning dough on a baking sheet, and getting a whiff of that yummy fresh-baked cookie smell filling the kitchen and beyond.
The newest Today’s Kidney Diet: Holiday Sweets & Treats cookbook offers 14 recipes for cookies, bars, popcorn and fudge. You can bake Anise and Orange Biscotti for a morning coffee-dipping cookie or Old-Fashioned Shortbread cookies cut into holiday shapes to decorate. Bake a pan of Apple Bars or Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars to share with neighbors or workmates. For a holiday gift, try the Low Phosphorus Fudge or Sugar and Spice Popcorn.
My favorite recipe in this cookbook is Angel Cookies. With only 4 ingredients, these delightful bites are easy to prepare, and have only 87 calories and 14 carb grams for 2 cookies.
In addition to the sweet treat recipes, you will also find information on ways to reduce or replace sugar, cookie-making and storage tips, pointers for making and cutting bar cookies, and ideas for wrapping and presenting sweet holiday gifts.
