- 1⁄2 cup peanuts (very finely chopped)
- Beat margarine with sugar replacement until creamy.
- Add vanilla, water and flour, mixing well.
- Refrigerate 1 hour.
- Form into 1-in ball, dip into beaten egg whites and roll in chopped peanuts.
- Place on ungreased cookie sheets.
- Bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes.
I had a bumper pecan crop this year so I substituted pecans for peanuts. The cookies looked beautiful; however, they were not sweet-tasting to me. Of course, I am not diabetic, so that may have made the difference. I am going to make a new batch for my diabetic daughter-in-law and add a little more sweetener. Perhaps they will taste better to me. I will make these for my next 50-Plus meeting. We have several diabetics in there.
God these were great. Thanks for posting.
