Thanks for posting these.

You need to do a CQ instead of just giving them away. This month is Desserts.

Just about any cereal would be ok, except maybe grape nuts.

the Smushy cookies sound good - along with peanut butter maybe add a square or two of a Hershey Bar in the middle ~*~

A note to diabetics; I have found that Splenda can be subbed for sugar in MOST cookie recipes. I have found that adding a little extra Splenda (rounded cup for instance) helps. Also any recipe that calls for baking powder ditto. Browning will also be less intense but overall Splenda seems to be OK. I have never had a major disaster, (yet)

Splenda is good for everything we buy by the 1,000 count pack, about $20.00
