  • 1 and 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons Stevia In The Raw® Bakers Bag
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger


  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  • In a food processor or blender, combine flour, powdered sugar, Stevia and salt. Pulse a few times.
  • Add butter, vanilla, cinnamon, cloves and ginger. Pulse until the dough starts to come together.
  • Place dough onto a sheet or parchment paper. Form it into a smooth ball. Press down to form a disk.
  • Cover with another sheet of parchment paper. Roll out into a 1/8" thick disk.
  • Place in the fridge to chill for 10 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Cut out cookies and place on a prepared baking sheet. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes OR until the cookies are golden brown and dry.
  • Cool on sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer onto a cooling rack.


To make ahead: after shaping the dough into a disk, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, then place in ziploc bag. Store in freezer for up to 3 months. When ready to use, thaw out in fridge, then roll out, cut out cookies and bake.
