A low-protein recipe for kids and adults with PKU —
by Dianne Sullivan
¾ cup (72 mg) butter or margarine, softened
1½ – 2 tsp almond extract
2 cups Dietary Specialties™ DP Low Protein Baking Mix
1 cup powdered sugar, divided
In a large bowl, beat margarine with ½ cup powdered sugar until light and fluffy. Blend in almond extract. Add flour to mixture until it forms a dough. Shape into a ball. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat hands and countertop with baking mix. Shape dough into ½-inch thick roll. Cut into 2-inch pieces. Arrange on ungreased cookie sheet and form into crescent shape. The cookies spread, so leave a lot of room between them. Bake for 15-20 minutes until faintly brown. Let cool at least 5 minutes or they will crumble. When cool, dust with remaining powdered sugar.
