valastro and his family and we count down to the finale of our great American Christmas cookie search. Buddy, thanks for being with us. How are you doing? You're obviously famous for your elaborate desserts. Rethink sweet Being a father of four and knowing the trends in America, everybody wants to eat the good stuff and it tastes well but they don't want the calories and I partner with whole Earth sweetener and they have a bunch of different products like a baking blend where you just substitute equal half the sugar you would put in your recipe with baking blend and it's half the calories. Half the calories, half the sugar. All right. So you brought your lower calorie gingerbread cookie. These are my lower calorie gingerbread cookies which I'll cut out and put on a pan here and if you go to wholeearthsweetener.com there's this and a bunch of other recipes. Tell me what the taste is like. This is why I partner with them. When they first gave me a bag of it and I put it in a cookie recipe, I brought the cookies home to my kids and they couldn't tell the difference between them and it's all natural. Okay. So and it's available retailers all over. Tell the truth, kids do, don't they. Especially your two. Absolutely. So we got our gingerbread men. Who doesn't like that for the holidays and give them red and green buttons, Bada bing, bad da boom. Let me taste one. See what you think. I got my lovely wife. Hi, how are you. Does all the baking and cooking at home for the holidays. This is the more traditional Italian -- the Italian cookie. Pronounce it for me. Tarallesome. So we just add some milk, egg, baking powder, vanilla, flour, shortening and mix it together and voila. We end up with this. And then you -- these are cool. Did you make these with this? Yeses. Instead of rolling it up -- Cut it into half-inch pieces and make a long one like that. Put it up, sprinkle on top in so easy. Very see for the kids. Look how cute these two are, Marco and Carlo.
