      I haven't yet decided if these are 4 or 5 stars as I'm somewhat new to cooking diabetic recipes. What I do know was that these were very good. Loved the texture given by the cornmeal and the combination of orange, cinnamon and cranberries. I chopped my fruit a bit to make sure every bite included that wonderful sweet/tart flavor. My cookies didn't brown much or spread but that's likely because of the Splenda. Also, I could taste the Splenda a bit and wonder if a bit more cinnamon & nutmeg, maybe even a bit of ginger, would take care of that. Thanks Paula!

      These are good! I used regular sugar and eggs (I didn't want to buy anything that I wouldn't normally get) and they turned out really well. They cornmeal gave them a very interesting texture that I'm not sure DH is going to like. I didn't have the orange zest and I wish I had b/c they would have made the cookies even prettier as well as adding to the taste. Thanks for sharing. :)
