How Much Sugar?

Before we forget Christmas...

    What did you do to survive Christmas fructose free?

    I made:
    the potato salad and swapped out the usual low fat mayo for a whole egg one (equal parts with sour cream.)

    Chang's Crispy Noodle salad with 1/2 cup of dextrose instead of 1/4 cup castor sugar (adjust to  taste)

    Mini cheesecakes from the Christmas treats recipes - next time I'm  going to  try half lemon, half orange juice.

    Chocolate crackles and marshmallows from  the party recipes and the  rolled biscuits from  the cheesecake bases.Kids had great fun cutting biscuits and  marshmallow with  Xmas  cutters. They decorated the biscuits (mostly dots and squiggles) with some piped icing sugar icing - there was so  little icing per biscuit.
    I also  made the shortbread recipe  from here too, but instead of  doing it in  a tin I rolled it into  logs,  refrigerated a bit,  then  sliced  biscuits and baked them. I've actually decided I like them  done this way better.

    Then, for dessert instead of pavlova we had Eton mess with  the Italian  meringues from  SweetPoison QP, whipped cream,  strawberries sliced up  and left overnight in a sprinkle of balsamic vinegar and  a sprinkle of dextrose and  the strawberry topping swirled over the top.

    Not bad considering I was the only fructose free person present :)
