Lauren's latest creation! Her chewy honey nut cookie I added a splurge of dried cranberries and white chocolate chips :blush: Only a few tbsp of each.

I am not sure who to give credit to but this is a god one, easy too.

Low-Carb Snickerdoodles

Makes about 26

1/2 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups ground almonds
1 cup granulated Splenda
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
2 tablespoons granulated Splenda
1 teaspoon cinnamon


In a medium bowl, beat butter until creamy. Add half the ground almonds, 1 cup Splenda, egg, vanilla, baking soda and cream of tartar. Beat until well combined. Beat in remaining ground almonds. Cover and chill in bowl for 1 hour. Pre-heat oven to 350 F. In a small bowl, combine the 2 tablespoons Splenda and the cinnamon; mix well. Roll chilled dough into 1-inch balls. Gently roll each ball in the cinnamon-Splenda mixture to coat and place 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes until lightly browned at the edges. Carefully remove from pan to cooling rack to cool completely.

Note: 1.5 net carbs per cookie

Granular Splenda provides no bulk so it's OK to use a Quickpack in place of the one cup Splenda. However, the 2 T. (used to roll the cookies in) should be the granular.

Here are a few of my family's holiday favorites.

* Note: Any of the following cookies that did not use my flour mixes in the original recipe have been tested with both versions of it and turn out very nicely.

So I could use the carblose (sp?) cookie & flour mix with these instead of the carbquick version for the snickerdoodles? I have a bunch of that made up already.

Yes sandy, I mix and match all the time. It only makes a slight carb difference. I use both mixes like all purpose flour.....whichever I have mixed at the time.

These sound tasty! I am having some company over this weekend and I think I will serve these after dinner. Thank you.
