Molasses Crackle Cookies
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch
Thanks to I_Fortuna !! I have mentioned many times that the recipes on this website that are labelled " diabetic" are far from it. Also some cooks try to make their recipe seem better for you by making the servings a ridiculous size. Often when I think the nutrition is off I will check with a nutrition counter. That being said , there are many good recipes here. You just have to pick
Since I am always on the lookout for cookie recipes that are not loaded with butter or shortening, I decided to try these lower-fat cookies. These came out great tasting and moist. I used just regular white all-purpose flour and lined the cookie sheets with parchment paper so they would not stick to the cookie sheet. Next time, I will roll the cookie dough in some granulated sugar first, then roll in confectioners sugar before baking, like I do when making chocolate crinkle cookies. Will make these again.
Not sure how these are diabetic friendly when sugar is involved as in white sugar and molasses. 14g of carbs per cookie is a lot. I always use sugar sub and no one can tell the difference and this cuts the carb amount. I just replace 1:1 ratio of sugar replacement. I mix a small amount of molasses with sugar free maple syrup. They don't come out as crispy but they are healthier.
I love crinkle cookies, but these had a weird texture (probably the white whole wheat flour) and I found them overly sweet. I'll stick with my Nonnie's recipe.
Ran across this recipe looking for low sugar desserts for diabetic spouse. They were so good - enjoyed by all family members. Did not miss all that sugar ( in fact, reduced to 1/2 cup) and flavor enormous. Skipped confectioners ' sugar.
One of the best cookies I have made in a long time. Easy to make. My family loves them very much and the kitchen swell's wonderful when baking. Great for Christmas.
