    this sounds fabulous as a cookie recipe to try & plan to do just that. Christmas time i do a ton of baking & even though my life partner's diabetic she still loves it when i get into the Baking mood as she gets to try new things & tells me which ones work & which ones don't work. Totally time to try a new one for her.
