Kevin's Sugar Cookies
 
Here is my stab at a sugar cookie

1 cup Carbquik
2 T. resistant wheat starch
2 T. wheat protein isolate 5000
1 t. baking soda
1/2 cup crisco green
2 T. powdered erythritol
1 T. isomalt
1 T. polyD
1 T. not/Sugar
1 t. cream of tartar
1 egg
1 t. vanilla
1/2 cup splenda equivilent(12 drops sweetzfree)

Combine carbquik, RWS, WPI 5000, and baking soda in a small bowl and set aside.

Combine erythritol, isomalt, polyD, not/Sugar, and cream of tartar in another bowl.
Mix crisco and sweetener mixture until light and fluffy.
Beat in egg, vanilla, and sweetzfree until smooth.
Gradually beat in flour mixture until well combined.

Wrap with plastic wrap and refridgerate overnight.

Divide dough in half and return other half to fridge.
Roll dough out between 2 sheets of wax paper to 1/8 inch thick.
Cut out with floured cutter.
Bake in a 350 oven on a foil lined cookie sheet for 8 to 9 minutes until edges are golden brown.
Cool on a wire rack .
Repeat with remaining dough.

Yeild: 1 1/2 to 2 doz (3 inch cookies)
Slightly less than 1 carb each

Kevin.........Can the Isomalt be omitted from your recipe?

Pam, I didn't make them without isomalt so any answer I give is going to be a guess.

With that in mind, for that small of an amount, diabeti Sweet brown or regular will work......if not that then 1 or 2 extra T. of polyD should work.

Kevin, did you detect any cooling effect from the erythritol in these cookies?

Do all the isomalt granules dissolve?

hey kevin first off let me say thanks for all of your wonderful recipes...I have a quick question, I noticed you used powdered E will granular work just as well with these sugar cookies? Any suggestions for a frosting?

I would imagine granular E would work also but I didn't try it. If you do please let us know how it turns out.

I have made a couple good whipped icings but none are very stiff like I remember on sugar cookies. The chocolate icing I used on the chocolate snack cake was about the stiffest yet.
