This recipe is from my grandma Blair. My dad who is diabetic loves these cookies so I adjust the recipe to make them with granulated Splenda and shorten the baking time. He enjoys them so much. When using the Splenda, they are a bit more dry than when baking with sugar. This recipe is my grandmothers original and contains sugar.
