cutout cookie (with carbalose flour)

i have so many dessert/snack recipes since that’s what clara is mostly focused on =)  Here is another take on a cutout cookie using carbalose flour.

The icing i have used here is Dawn’s icing recipe.  I just added coloring & flavor.  I had to whip it quite a bit to get a good consistency to decorate the cookies, but it was worth it given how pretty they turned out and how Clara just loved it.

For the smily face cookie, i used Nevada Manna mini semi-sweet chocolate chips.  Place them on the cookie before baking.  Once the cookie cools completely, the chocolate will harden too.

**Please check with your dietician to see if carbalose flour is ok with your diet.  It is the sam flour used for CarbQuik**
