Ahh.......if truth were known I guess if I was skinny I would be tempted to eat the whole plateful too. At Christmas when my Mother would bake - the whole plateful always looked beautiful to say nothing of tasting wonderful. She was Swedish and always used butter, none of this oleo crud went in her cookies. Reminds me of one year when she went to her usual "hiding" place to retrieve a certain variety of cookie she had previously baked and guess what??? There were nothing but large crumbs in the cookie tin. My Dad, who was a cookie monster, had periodically raided the cookie tin for his snack every night when he would go to the basement to 'tend' the furnace. Oh boy...was she irate!!!

Since both my parents are gone now, it is good to remember fond memories

I think many of us associate Christmas with baking for weeks on end. When my kids were young I always baked the 2 weeks before Christmas. A few years ago my daughter took over the baking duties. Last Christmas she baked for several of our friends so we had cookies cooling all over the house. The smell drove me nuts. I still crave cookies. When I make MCS's cookies, my husband prefers them to the real thing, too. I have even pushed the envelope a little and eaten 5 or 6 and still saw no spike. Many times I eat them and my bg goes down. How can that be bad. I think the way we share LC recipes is great. I am one who needs to eat every 3-4 hours or I get a liver dump. Sometimes I am not really hungry but a cookie or two is just the right amount of food to trick my liver into being happy.

Sorry for my ignorance, but which MCS's cookies are you referring to? I was looking for cookies, but must have overlooked the recipe you like.

I wouldn't say it's denial at all. If you are eating so much low-carb desert that you're still getting 50+ g of carbs a day, yeah maybe you should dial it in. But otherwise it helps you stay on track, fill you up and prevent feeling deprived.

The only reason I avoid low-carb substitutes (especially sweets) is that my body is dumb and likes to put on 2-3 pounds of water when I do. I think it's because I still get an insulin response even though the carb count is low? Just a guess.
