The holidays can be a challenging time to find creative ways to stay healthy while partaking in seasonal traditions. Luckily, there are ways to even turn the classic Christmas cookie into a healthy alternative.
This recipe for Texas Pecan Puffs makes shortbread cookies that are low in sugar and are great paired with coffee and hot cocoa. They can also be made gluten and dairy free!

¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup sifted powdered sugar
2 cups Texas pecans
2 teaspoons vanilla
