Christmas Cut Out Cookies?

One of my families tradition is to bake lots of Cut-Out cookies for the holidays. We go crazy baking and decorating.

Is there any hope that we can continue with this tradition? Any recipe for a good LC SF cut out cookie?

Cookies are my biggest downfall. I don't know that I could have them in my home without wanting to eat all of them! *LOL* I really shouldn't eat ONE of them considering they are way too high in fat & sugar.

THANKS!
XOXOXOXOXOXOX

I honestly don't know if this would work as a cutout cookie, but it seems like it would be the right consistency and is mild enough to serve as a base for frosting or sprinkles or some decoration:

1 Cup Nut butter (any kind...I've used cashew and almond)
1 1/8 Cup granular Splenda
2 oz cream cheese
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1 egg

Just blend it all together and use as a cutout dough. It may be a bit sticky, so you might have to "flour" the table, cutters and roller with some nut flour or bake mix.

I actually used these to make thumbprint cookies (with sugar free jam in the center) and they were great! No promises on the cutouts, but it seems like it might work.

I haven't tried cut outs, but this weekend I made a recipe from Low Carb Energy magazine that were made like Spritz cookies (pushed through the cookie press). The basis was vanilla shake powder. They are really good! I put them directly in the freezer after trying one!!
