I found this recipe online while looking for South Beach Phase I dessert recipes. I changed them up a little...almond extract instead of vanilla and I cut the amount of Splenda a bit. They are so amazingly good that you will not realize they're low carb. Trust me on this...... there's a reason there are only three cookies in the picture ;-)
