I made half of this recipe yesterday and they are already gone from this house! I used light margarine and splenda instead of sugar. I didn't use the powdered sugar... loved them plain. Thank you.

I made these for Christmas and my Baci (grandmother) LOVED them! And she has quite a sweet tooth! Incidentally, she now has to monitor her blood sugar, so I made these gems using Splenda, reduced-fat margarine, skim milk soured w/ oj (no buttermilk on hand), and skipped the powdered sugar (these tasty treats didn't need them anyway). B/c of the low-fat, high-water content, the cookies puffed (I don't know if they're supposed to do that anyway) - but that's ok! The only miniscule problem is that I found them a little on the dry side, but it easily could have been becaue of my choice in margarine. After my changes, calories: 36; fat grams: .9
