Trim Cookies (S)

Old Saint Nick probably wouldn’t be known for his round belly if he indulged in Trim Healthy Mama’s Trim Cookies instead of those sugar-laden cookies he’s known for requesting! No need for THMs to be left out of holiday festivities! These cookies are sure to delight everyone in the family – make an activity out of it and let the kids help you decorate! There’s an optional frosting recipe included here in the Recipe Notes area.
