Top Review by Annacia

These are a lovely diabetic friendly treat. I use Splenda and you don't cream it with fat but add it with the flour. So as there was really nut much to cream I simply melted the heart healthy margarine I used and added all of the wet ingredients and stirred. That worked fine. This recipe doesn't make "sweet" cookies and I like that very much. If you have a real sweet tooth you may want to add more sugar substitute . I was expecting these to spread in baking but they didn't so if you want flatter cookies then I would spread the dough more with the back of a spoon when dropped. They come out perfect at the 12 min point. All in all a very worthwhile recipe
