This recipe is to die for, even with the changes to Splenda brown sugar blend. My DD also added chocolate chips. Thanks for posting!!!!

These are the cookies my Mom and Grandma used to make with a very slight change in the recipe: 1 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp baking soda, and bake 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.

Good basic cookie, great for the lunch box if they last that long. Had to hide the last batch or would have had to run to the store for twinkies.
