We decorated cookies today...we've never done this before and it was fun! We had to move quickly because the buttercream icing was melting. In normal life, the fact that your AC doesn't turn on wouldn't really be a problem five days before Christmas...but it was 78 degrees in our house!
Hahah...and ALSO. It's a good idea to use whole wheat flour in baking. It's also a good idea to replace some of the fat with applesauce and it's a good idea to use Splenda for baking. It is NOT a good idea to use all three in the same recipe! We won't have to worry about these just lasting three days once Daddy finds them...honestly, I think if you put them out in a field somewhere, they'd last a hundred years. =)
But Carly doesn't CARE! All she knows is that it is a cookie.

Ya know, I used to mess with my deserts trying to make them healthier but then I came to the realization that it was SUPPOSED to be a TREAT not healthfood! They did look cute though ;o)

Try using 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 unbleached flour.
