Well, Christmas is a little over a week away and this weekend at our house was spent writing Christmas cards, wrapping gifts, decorating a gingerbread house, making fudge and baking cookies!

Helping the process along this year, was a lovely baking set I received from the great folks at Unilever, to help promote their “Good To Know” initiative.

With a wide variety of soft spreads, including Country Crock, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!, Promise, Brummel & Brown, and Imperial – Unilever has a spread for you.   ALL of their spreads are Good to Know because they:


  • ·        Have 0g trans fat per serving
  • ·        Contain no partially hydrogenated oils
  • ·        Have no cholesterol
  • ·        Are 70% less fat than butter per serving
  • ·        Have 30% fewer calories than butter per serving


Also, many of  their spreads are also gluten-free!

As part of their Good to Know initiative, Unilever challenged me to replace the butter or other soft spread with one of their spreads in one of my cookie recipes.


Since my family loves Snickerdoodles, I decided to cheat (just a little) and use Pamela’s Gluten-Free Sugar Cookie Mix to make my dough.






The Unilever spread I chose to use was I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! Light.  And yes, I know, it would have been easier to measure if I had purchased the stick version, but it really wasn’t any problem scooping out the soft spread into a measuring cup.  😉



I scooped the dough into balls and rolled it in cinnamon sugar and baked them according to the directions on the cookie mix.



They came out lovely, don’t you think?
