directions

  • In bowl combine flour, sweetener, baking powder nutmeg, cinnamon and salt.
  • In another bowl cream margarine and sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs , vanilla and almond extracts. Stir in flour mixture and nuts. (Hands work well here).
  • Divide dough in half. Shape into 2 logs 2 inches (5cm) wide and 12inches(30cm) long.
  • Spray baking sheet with nonstick coating. Bake bars at 325 degrees ( 160C) for about 25 minute or until golden brown. Remove and cool for 5 minutes.
  • Cut each bar (diagonally) into 21 slices about ½ inch (1cm) thick. Lay slices on baking sheet: return to 300F (150C) oven and bake 10 minutes more to dry. Remove to wire rack to cool completely before storing in airtight container.
  • Kitchen tip:

  • Roast hazelnuts in a shallow pan in 350°F.
  • (180C) oven for 10 minutes. Rub the warm nuts vigorously in a tea towel to remove the bitter skins.

    Can you use all substitute sugar like granular Truvia instead of the 1/4 cup of sugar?

    The flavor reminds me of Snickerdoodles! Very good and easy to make. My only mistake was not making the whole recipe. I only made half :) My store was out of hazelnuts, so I used toasted almonds, which worked fine. Made for Spring 2009 PAC.

    Aside from having a marvelous taste with the spice (I doubled the cinnamon) this dough was a pleasure to work with and the cookies didn't crumble when I sliced them. I didn't have hazelnuts so I used walnuts which was fine. These are well named, they are pure pleasure when dunked into your coffee. Thank you for this lovely treat.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

My Husband and I live in the southern interior of BC Canada. We have been married for 36 years and have 3 children, and a border collie named Spook, (she has always been a jumpy little thing, spooks at just a leaf blowing in the wind, the name suites her ha ha)Sorry to say, my Kitty passed away last summer, and we haven't replaced him. <br>My husband builds log homes, and I am retired from the Post Office where I was a rural mail carrier. My two eldest children are married and I have 5 grand children, my youngest daughter is in grade 12 this year. <br>Cooking has become a hassle for me lately due to my arthritis and diabetes. So this Christmas I am looking for both types of sweets, those with splenda for me (I don?t need to many, just enough so I can have a taste, along with my guests) and those I normally make for guests. This is my first Christmas as a Diabetic and I am quite worried about it.
