Ratings & Reviews

    I tried this recipe because of a diabetic in the family. My family loved them. If you know what sugar substitute (I used Splenda) tastes like, you can taste it. I think next time I'll do the sugar and substitute half and half. This is going to be one of our new regulars! By the way, I didn't get near the yield it said. I was only able to squeeze out 20 cookies.
    A quick easy recipe. Be aware, unless you make quarter size cookies, you won't get 3 dozen. I did teaspoons and got 16 cookies. Worked great for me, I don't like waiting around for pan after pan. My sugar substitue was 8 packets stevia in the raw which could have been even less, plenty sweet! This yielded a great cookie that was cakey in texture and nicely soft.
