  • Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a separate mixing bowl. Gradually add flour mixture to SPLENDA® Naturals Sugar & Stevia Sweetener Blend mixture, beating until blended. Do not over-mix.

  • Place dough on a lightly floured work surface. Divide dough in half; pat each half into a circle and wrap with plastic wrap. Chill cookie dough for one hour or until slightly firm.

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

  • Remove dough from refrigerator. Work with one portion of dough at a time. Roll each portion to 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut with a cookie cutter, and place on lightly greased cookie sheets. Sprinkle with decorative candies or colored sugars, if desired.

  • Bake in preheated oven 8 to 10 minutes or until edges of cookies are lightly browned. Cool slightly on cookie sheets; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

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.

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 Read More

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

Do NOT make this bad bad recipe. These are more like biscuits than cookies and that was only after adding 3/4 cup of milk because the dough was obviously too dry. Even with adding the milk the dough felt like clay dough rather then cookie dough. The cooking time took longer than expected by about 5 minutes. On the other hand take the word cookie out of this recipe and you might have something. Read More

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. Read More

I will probably make this again though it is not my favorite. I had to bake it up to 11 minutes and still it did not brown up quite right. Not a big deal since many people prefer it with little or no browning on the bottom. It is a tasty recipe and worthy to be posted and tried. Read More
