Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Would love to make these, can you substitute pure dextrose for the sugar and also need the nutrient breakdown, carbs,sugar and fat..?

"how is a serving" should read, how many cookies are considered a serving. pardon me typo's.

Thanks for posting this. Sounds yummy, but I was wondering what the "numbers" are. Such as: how is a serving, calories per serving, calories from fat, and all of that good stuff since I am a heart patient and would love this receipe but need to know the "numbers" (as in Read Those Labels" before baking theese. Thanks!
