#3 Christmas Meringues with Eggnog Buttercream

Give me the choice of a meringue vs a chocolate chip cookie and meringues win every time. They’re lighter and also a few calories less than your traditional, Christmas cookie.

Christmas Meringues filled with an eggnog buttercream frosting. A delicious dessert that is sure to be a hit at holiday parties. They're easy to make too!

#4 The Ultimate Christmas Cookie

When I think of Christmas cookie baking only one cookie comes to mind: the sugar cookie. I imagine beautifully decorating cookies cut out in shapes of candy canes, snowflakes and gingerbread men. Something else I relate to Christmas would be candy canes, these seasonal treats not only make hot chocolate that much sweeter but bring a beautiful pop of color to Christmas baking.

#5 Low-Sugar Cookie

When you want to cut the sugar, go for this recipe. For those of you who haven’t tried it before, Truvia Baking Blend is a blend of Truvia Calorie-Free Sweetener and sugar. Truvia Baking Blend bakes and browns like sugar, and you get the sugar-like taste, with 75% fewer calories per serving than regular sugar. In addition to that, you use a lot less because the bag goes a long way. I used the Truvia Baking Blend often and it is the key to my success with these Low Sugar Cookies.

Low Sugar Sugar Cookies - this recipe for Low Sugar Cookies is amazing! With 0.1g of sugar per serving, it saves a ton of calories and they still taste like the perfect sugar cookie. I love healthy cookie recipes. |thebewitchinkitchen.com

#7 Red Velvet Cinnamon Rolls

So I didn’t originally classify these red velvet cinnamon rolls as a Christmas treat, because they’re great any time of year. But with the red velvet and white cream cheese frosting, I think they scream Christmas!! You can also make these ahead for a Christmas morning breakfast that will make everyone happy!
