Healthy Sugar Cookies

I know baking should consist of LOTS of butter, sugar, and cream but I made these healthy sugar cookies the other day and they came out great. The best part is, they are only 50 calories a cookie, so you can eat them without feeling guilty.

3/4 cup ww pastry flour (or white if you want)
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt (just under level)
1/4 tsp plus 1/8 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 and 1/2 tablespoons nondairy milk of choice
1/4 cup butter sub (I used Brummel and Brown)

Preheat oven to 325º F. Combine dry ingredients and mix well. In a separate bowl, melt the butter substitute, then stir in vanilla and milk. Pour dry into wet and mix again. Form balls or roll out (not too thin), then use a cookie cutter to make shapes. Cook in oven for 9 minutes. Just let them cool for 5 minutes before touching.

When they have cooled, you might want to put some icing on them to give them a little more oomph, but I ate my plain and they were great!
