I couldn't believe that you could make these cookies without flour. I saw them on Emeril and had to give them a try. An added touch is to put chocolate chips in the batter. Yum!

I made these cookies (as written) and everyone at work loved them. They were referred to as the "best cookies ever" and everyone wanted the recipe. I suspect that the people who downrated this recipe had problems simply because of the splenda, not because of the recipe. The recipe is GREAT!
I made the recipe exactly as described only I substitued Splenda for the sugar. The cookies looked great when finished but I wasn't happy when I tasted them. They were definitely dry, like a tea cookie. And it wasn't because I baked them too long, if anything I under-cooked them. Also, I am extra sensitive to artificial sweetener taste and I could definitely taste the Splenda. These must be better with real sugar. However, the recipe is extremely easy and takes only minutes so give it a try and see if you can do better than me. The recipe made exactly 12 cookies.
I'm on Atkin's and couldn't wait to try these! (no flour allowed on Atkins!) I subbed "Splenda" for the sugar. They tasted great! One problem was they were a little dry. Could be the Splenda or I cooked them a little to long. (With Splenda you have to shorten the cooking time. My son liked them also!
