You can replace the sugar with diabetic sugar, and it does not change the taste. Easy to make and excellent to eat!

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
