University Sugar Cookies




     It doesn't take a college degree to know that University Sugar Cookies are good for you!  True fact.  But you can decide for yourself... each of these 24 frosted beauties are only 108 calories, 1.3g net carbs, 4.3g protein and 8.8g fat (serving size is 1oz dough and 1 Tablespoon frosting).  In fact, I heard a rumor they will be serving these at the next Mensa Society gathering...I might have heard that gossip wrong,... maybe it was the Rhodes Scholar get together...  Anyhoo, if you want to celebrate your formal education, dust off your favorite cookie cutters and get to work.  And for those who are wondering, WSU stands for Wichita State University, where I graduated with a Bachelors in the Science of Nursing!  :)
