Are cookies made with Splenda as good as with regular sugar?

Question by Karen: Are cookies made with Splenda as good as with regular sugar?
Looked at sugar-free cookies at the grocery and the prices were so high that we want to bake our own. Any good recipes out there?

It’s almost impossible to cover up the taste of artificial sweeteners, but that doesn’t mean that the finished product won’t be good.

    You need to be careful of things that say sugar free. Things with flour have a lot of carbs, flour is almost worst then sugar. Please check out the carb count on these things.
