Spencer Has Cookie Failure......Wooops!

It's not that I'm a DREAM in the kitchen, but these little guys were a TOTAL disaster. Whew....They turned out to be barely chocolate flavored, dry, little cardboard balls........mmmmmmmmmm.............not so good. And, I confess, I dug into my garbage to retrieve this little buggers so I could share them with you. Now, don't 'ya just feel so darn lucky? Your day's been made, right?

I gave up sugar six weeks ago. WOW! Good for me. I didn't have any sugar at all for five years and it seemed things were ever so much easier in the control department, until one day.........I .........mmmmmmmmmm..........slipped. That's been a LONNNNNG time ago. Being in that same darn situation again, I determined it would again be my course of action. So I began. FOUR whole weeks without ONE SINGLE refined carb. YOWZA! I can't believe I did it.

Another three weeks go by and I'm thinking.......surely I can make a nice little sugar free cookie? I had a recipe from Prevention for a non-fat cookie and thought I could simply replace the sugar with Splenda.......and now we have little, dry, yukky balls.........Disappointing, that's for sure.

I am soooooooo in need of assistance.... hopefully, someone out there has a nice little cookie recipe sweetened with applesauce.........or PRUNES??? SOMETHING????

These little delights nearly drove me to a nice little Pink cookie... :-)

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your visits and kind comments on my blog. I'm having a wonderful time getting to know you. I love your creativity and I've gotten so much from coming to visit all of you. I keep thinking I've found the best of the best now and I find more and more every day! There are, indeed, lots of wonderful ladies out there.

God Bless ALLLLL of You.

In gratitude,


  1. I sure hope someone shares a great sugar free recipe - I want one! Hubby can't have sugar and I miss baking.

  2. Spencer...I understand about the sugar. I can't tolerate it because it gives me migraines. Isn't it the pits? Ha.

    It is so good to get to know you. You have a lovely blog and we are definitely 'Bella' girls!

    Hugs right back to you!

  3. I'm interested in seeing what others come up with too. It's always a great idea to cut out sugar when you can.

    I did wonder - can you have honey?


    P.S. I'm so happy you came by my blog because I now get to discover yours! It's wonderful!

  4. Your cookie story is cracking me up...My husband made cookies before and they were as hard as a rock... Hope you find a good sugar free recipe...I don't know of any off hand...


Sweet and dear little Chickies....thank you so much for your comments. I read each and every one. I always try to make a return visit........sometimes I fail miserably... but you're alllll soooo special to me!

Many, many hugs!
