Reviews for Almond Spice Cookies
"Well I can't say much more than I've already said but there's a space so I'm filling it in. These are really yummy and I already had more than I should and the carbs might be off because I think maybe I got two dozzen plus a few. And they are not that big. However, there is actually less sugar and less flour than in most cookie recipes. Most call for 1/12 cups sugar where this one calls for 3/4 cup. Most call for 2/1/2 cups flour and this one calls for 1-1/4. So even if the carb count isn't right, at least it is lower carb than your average cookie and my whole family liked them. I have tried two other "diabetic" recipes and they tasted like somebody who had no sense of how things are supposed to taste was cooking trying to make something that someone with weird food issues might enjoy. I figure if I'm going to eat sweets, they might as well tast like real sweet things and not like something nasty. There's too much information out there for diabetics to not make things that taste really good."
