I made a first batch with margarine. They were very good. I made a second batch with real butter and they totally fell apart. So I suggest, do NOT use real butter. Also, refridgerate for at least 1 hr. The dough is very sticky.
The flavor of the cookies is delicious but they just fell apart. I don't know if there's anything I could have done differently but I tried to follow the recipe carefully. They fall to pieces after one bite. I still plan to eat all of them though!
Delicious! Light and flaky. These cookies didn't last long as we ate them right off of the cookie sheet. You are right-can't even taste the missing sugar. My husband does not eat sugar and I made these for him for a treat after he spent 2 hours snow-bowing our driveway! I left some plain and added the jam to the rest.
Absolutely wonderful. I've not been a diabetic for long, and these are the best cookies for diabetics I've ever tasted. Flo Braker, a nationally known baker, has a similar recipe (not for diabetics). She notes in her cookbook that these can be stored in a metal airtight container for up to ten days. Happy Cooker Too
