This recipe was used for Elderly diabetics and they loved making it! It's so hard to find low-sugar recipes that actually taste as good as this one was. Thanks! ~Heather McLaughlin

This recipe was so dry that I could barely get dough to form. I had to use extra butter to make it even formable and then it tasted like sawdust anyways.

Don't waste your time or ingredients, like I did. These are dry and tasteless. A pain to make because the nuts wouldn't stick. I'll probably end up throwing them out. I would give it zero stars, if I could.

I don't know if I did something wrong or what, but I didn't like these at all. They had no flavor.

A bit flat in taste but attractive looking.

These were pretty good! Made for my diabetic grandmother but, my son liked them too. Of course my sweet tooth could tell the differece but overall a pretty good cookie.

I'm sorry, but these were just gross. the lack of sugar shouldn't mean lack of taste. I made these for some diabetic relatives and they only had one each! there are better recipes.
