Yummy Sugar Free Holiday "Sugar" Cookie Recipe

More than 23 million people in the United States have diabetes -- and more than 5 million don't know it. When the holidays roll around, sweet treats can present a challenge, however people with diabetes need to be careful.

Dietitian Randi Levine features some healthier holiday cookies. Randi and several other health professionals will teach a class on holiday cooking for children with diabetes on December 2 at the Gerald J. Friedman Institute at Beth Israel Medical Center. The class is free.
