    Love these. Even my daughters loved them and one of them is a super picky eater. I am going to have to hide them, because they are so good it's hard to eat just one.

    I'm not a splenda after taste fan, but these cookies are pretty tasty. I added a bit extra orange zest...I like orange flavor. Over all a good diabetic cookie!
