WE DON’T NEED NO STINKIN COOKIES!
The holidays are upon us and that means cookies.
I have streamlined my cookie count down to two types. The sugar cookie christmas cutouts and the traditional biscotti. If you have to have the aroma of fresh baked cookies in your home here is an alternative that can help you keep on the straight and narrow.
the recipe is simple 3/4 cup applesauce and 1 whole container of cinnamon. Mix together until it is a sticky dough, roll them out, cut them into cute shapes, use a straw to make a whole on the top, put in oven on a cookie sheet and bake at 200 degrees until they are hard about two and half hours.
ps. In aromatherapy cinnamon is used as an appetite suppressant.
So you will have the aroma you want but not the temptation around.
Leave the cookies for Santa this year.
Also along with the holidays this year is a cold snap. I walk all year long and just took an hour long walk in the freezin cold, but if you are not used to it please do not go out in this weather. It is one of the combinations of conditions that may instigate a cardiac event. You have to have worked up to it and your body must be in good condition. Use your treadmill or stair stepper or just have a jazzercise session in your living room.
