    I use splenda instead of sugar and have diabetic relations who eat splenda. I have been using the same amount of splenda as I would sugar and they taste fine. I have been using it fr the biscuit recipes on here : http://www.recipesforvegans.co.uk/baking.html

    Yes, check the package to be sure.

    Also, since you say these are for your holiday cookies, just a word of caution:

    PLEASE tell anyone who may eat them that there is Splenda in the cookies…people do have allergies to it. I am allergic to it and I have eaten things before with Splenda because the person didn’t tell me, and it’s not good.

    You might want to bump it up by maybe a quarter of a cup. The things I have made needed a bit more Splenda.

    I made pecan pies with Splenda and sugar free syrup for Thanksgiving, they came out great.

    Happy Holidays.

    My dad was diabetic, and my sister used to bake him all kinds of things using the old saccharin. That was not the same ratio. I’d read the instructions on the Splenda box, or call the 1-800 number on the box. Good luck, God Bless and Merry Christmas.
