Cookies look good... that is weird that it shows 61 on the side lol

They do look good!

I also noticed the 61 calorie thing. Still, 60 cals is not bad for a cookie.

The recipe also says it makes 20-24 or 40-48 cookies so I guess the 61 calories are for the bigger cookies? Still it sounds good :D

The page says that it makes 40-48 cookies and serves 20-24 people, so the 61 calories is for 2 cookies. Also, I don't usually bake with splenda, so I looked it up.. and that will only add ~2-3 calories per cookie.

Yeah... the 61 is for two cookies. When I make it I will actually measure out and count the calories from the ingredients *I* use so I can get a for sure accurate calorie count.

Thanks for the i nfo about the splenda mayness. i was wondering about that cause they sound yummy

Sounds good - except for the splenda part.... =[

Well, if it helps, I also looked up how many calories using sugar would add (in case I wasn't brave enough to bake with the Splenda)... it would be ~20-30 more per cookie. So 60 calorie cookies... which still sounds pretty good.

This is assuming Splenda Granular is the one that you can use 1:1 in place of sugar... I think it is. :?:

My issue with Splenda, thogh - is all of the side effects that its use has. I try to steer clear from it along with other artificial sweeteners. Do you think this recipe can use xylitol or stevia?

Yes, Splenda granular is the 1:1 product. I don't know much about xylitol or stevia but I think that some of those can't hold up to the heat when baking and break down. I used something other than splenda for baking once and it ended up very bitter. Also, I don't bring anything xylitol (even gum) into my house because it's highly toxic to dogs and my dog tends to get into EVERYTHING.
