I just about keeled over when I tasted these:
Cream Cheese Pecan "Sugar" Cookies
1/2 cup Splenda
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup almond flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup pecans
dash of salt
1/2 package cream cheese
2-3 tsp vanilla
2 cups Splenda
Cream together 1/2 cup Splenda, butter, egg, baking soda, salt, vanilla. Then add almond flour and pecans. Stir together well. Spoon batter onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 8 min at 375.
While it's cooking, prep the frosting. Mix together softened cream cheese, vanilla, and Splenda.
Once cookies have cooled, cover in frosting. Sprinkle with pecans and gobble up immediately.
About 12-15 carbs per cookie is what I'm estimating right now. I ate three of them, and they're rich enough that I feel a little sick (who would have thought it was possible to make diabetic-friendly cookies this rich and gooey and tasty? Certainly not me).
All things are truly possible. Enjoy!

$470 from Cincinnati to Madison?
WTF people, I could have flown back to WA this time last year for that price (I paid something like $250 last year for the exact same flight).
Here's to hoping airline prices catch up to gas prices before the con.
My credit card company, which I'm planning to ditch when I pay off the last 5K (I have another 4k on a no-interest card right now, which I'm paying off at a slower rate), just raised my credit limit to $20,200.
My God, yo. And they wonder how I got myself into financial problems in the first place.
This just seems obscene to me.
