I just love sugar cookies during the holidays...but I don't want all the carbs. Surely, someone who bakes can try and modify a sugar cookie recipe using Splenda or erythritol and possibly almond flour. Please..
Hey Breeze, you need to do what I did when I lived with my Mom ... set aside ONE kitchen cabinet, for your stuff! It helped immensely!Can't find my almond flour! I had a whole bag. My Mom cleaned out the lazy-susan and I am betting she threw it away...I am not happy.
I made these ... subbing some ground pecans for part of the almond flour, and 1 T of vanilla splenda syrup plus 1/2 c eryth. They were VERY crumbly this way ... but delicious and filling! What lasted to the NEXT DAY firmed up nicely and held their shape -- and tasted better too. Yes, I ate the whole batch ...The Christmas Cookie folk seem to think this one's a hit!

And if the recipe makes 12 cookies, my calculations are that, using erythritol instead of splenda, the stats would be about . . .

And hey! We could even ice them with Marty's butter/cream cheese icing!
