Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I only used a cup of flour as a cup and a half would not mix well. Dough was like elastic and texture of baked cookie was heavy. The taste is good. I would keep the recipe but try less flour next time to try and change the consistency of the cookie.

is confectioners sugar the same as white icing sugar, and if it is how can diabetics use it?

Hi there! Yes, confectioners sugar is the United States' equivalent to England and Canada's icing sugar. Both are 10x powdered sugars. All of our recipes are created with a diabetic diet in mind. That said, each recipe meets the American Diabetes Association's standards to be considered "diabetic friendly." Since each person's daily limits on intake differ, it is important to speak with a medical professional regarding how much sugar you can consume daily. Each recipe comes with complete nutritional information in order for you to determine if a recipe is safe for you to consume. We hope that you enjoy our recipes. Thanks!

Stevia is an all natural herbal sweetner. Personally, I prefer TRUVIA

Can some one tell me what stevia is!!!!!

Hi there! Stevia is a natural sweetener that is used in this recipe. You can substitute with another sweetener if you prefer it. Thanks!
