Sugar-Free Crispy Oatmeal Cookies

"I modified this recipe and have come up with a cookie recipe that I have made once a week now for 6 months. If the cookie jar gets empty, it is a tragedy around our home. This is a very crispy cookie and reminds me of the granola bar. It's really great, give it a try. Don't deviate from the ingredients, however you may add raisins if desired."

    Pretty good reduced sugar oatmeal cookie - Splenda brown sugar has brown sugar mixed in, so not actually 'sugar-free.' I followed ingredients as stated not making any substitutions and formed the soft dough into logs. However, I had no idea how long I was supposed to wait until the dough was going to be 'almost frozen;' I waited about an hour, but probably should have waited a bit longer. No time was indicated for approximate baking time, so I started checking at 10 minutes and found that my cookies were golden on the bottoms at 17 minutes - these cookies don't spread. They do have a nice texture for a lightened cookies; however, the taste of the butter flavor crisco is very overpowering, which I didn't care for at all. Even though there is quite a bit of sugar substitute in these they do not taste sweet; in fact I would even say they are 'bland.' Maybe cinnamon or cloves would give them a boost without compromising sugar content. These just weren't quite right to me. Made for PAC Spring 2008.
