My boyfriend has type 1 diabetes and i wanted to make him v-day cookies! so i used this recipe with a few changes - first off, i only made half the recipes. then i substituted the Splenda "Sugar Blend" for the original Splend "Granular" (the Sugar Blend has real sugar in it, unlike the Granular which he can have). By doing that, I needed to double the amount of sugar I used because the sugar blend version is sweeter than regular sugar. So instead of 1/2 cup, I used 1. then from a tip on the splenda website, i added an extra teaspoon of vanilla extract (totaling it to 2 teaspoons instead of 1). i lightly sprayed cooking oil on the top so they would brown (because splenda granular doesn't brown like regular sugar). i rolled the dough and let it sit in the fridge for 1 hour. after that i sliced the dough into 1/8 inch slices and baked then for about 10-15 minutes in 325 degrees. they came out pretty good!! a little dry though so maybe next time i'll add a WEEE bit of water.

Loved the cookies--BUT-- i only used 3cups of flour AND I didn't chill the dough. I rolled them walnut size, and flattened with bottom of glass and baked 10 min. They were perfect.

I also used splenda no calorie granular in this receipe as well as king arthur white whole wheat flour...it was in crumbles...I added 3/4 cup of water to get the dough to mix into a ball. I have not baked it yet but I think there may be to much flour on the ingredients. next time I will cut the flour to 3 cups instead of four IF I try this one again

I used 3 cups flour instead of the 4 cups. They really reminded me of my childhood, at Christmas time.

the most wonderful cookie I ever had

Excellent cookies, I had to bake them 16 minutes to doneness on an airbake pan.

I will never NEVER make these again! They were too dry. The taste wasn't great for me either. I don't think they are worth trying with 3 cups of flour instead of 4. Hated these. Will stick to my good old fashioned fattening full of sugar recipe.

also, using 3 cups four instead of 4 is a MUST.
