These cookies are made using a sugar replacement, so they are perfect for those diet-conscious snackers and/or diabetics. These would also be great cookies for someone on the Atkins diet.


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a large baking sheet.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, 1 cup of Splenda, the egg, and vanilla. Stir well with a spoon.
  3. Roll the dough into balls the size of walnuts. Place the balls on the prepared cookie sheet.
  4. With a fork dipped in optional 1/3 cup of Splenda to prevent sticking, press a criss-cross design on each cookie.
  5. Bake for 12 minutes, remove from the oven, and sprinkle the cookies with the optional 1/3 cup of Splenda.
  6. Cool slightly before removing from the pan.
