Don't know where the problem is the recipe or our prep but these were without a doubt the worst cookies ever....Lack of flavor, the consistency was gritty and seemingly under baked although we extend the recommend time in several experiments..Had to dump.

Made this recipe up a week or so ago as I wanted to bring a treat for some of the diabetics in our congregation - who tend to miss out on treats. <br/>Followed the recipe using the brown sugar instead of splenda or alternative sweetener source......and these were well received.<br/>Quick to make - and the rice cereal provided some interesting texture to the cookie. One of my dear friends, asked for the recipe, and she is diabetic - so from that perspective - this recipe is a winner.<br/>For those of us who are steady consumers of buttery rich cookies, this may not receive a 5/5, but, for diabetics and those liking a less rich cookie - this will fit the bill well.<br/>Oh! and next time I will add more lemon rind or maybe a few drops of lemon extract as the lemon flavour could be increased.<br/>Thanks for posting Northern_Reflectionz
