These powdered-sugar cookies end up on many a holiday cookie platter and are one of my personal favorites. Here's a light rendition I love just as much.


  1.  Preheat oven to 350°F. In a mixing bowl, beat margarine and vanilla until smooth.
  2.  In a 4-cup measure, whisk 1/4 cup of the powdered sugar, sugar substitute, and both flours together, then beat into the butter mixture until just blended.
  3. On low speed, beat in the chopped walnuts.
  4. Use a cookie scoop (1/8 cup) to place the dough on an ungreased nonstick cookie sheet or jellyroll pan, 2 inches apart. Using your fingers, press down on the dough balls to flatten to 1/2-inch thickness.
  5. Bake for about 12 minutes, or until starting to lightly brown. Let cool, then roll in the remaining 1 cup of powdered sugar.
