    Nancy Fox's Note:

    So cute and colorful for Easter, these old-fashioned sugar cookies are crispy, delicate and buttery tasting. And, we’re using just a small amount of reduced-fat butter combined with canola oil. Each skinny cookie has 37 calories, less than 1 gram of fat and 1 Weight Watchers POINTS. Although we like our sugar cookies crispy, if you like them soft, bake them for a shorter time. Have fun rolling in several colors of sugar. These can be made way in advance since they’ll last several weeks in an airtight container. If they actually last that long!
