It was tasty and my family members who are diabetic were thrilled to finally get a tasty homemade diatetic cookie, however I changed the flour measurements to 1 1/4 cups, and added an egg. It went further, and wasn't so greasy that way. I only bake them at 375 degrees for 11 minutes. They are best served hot so if you like,you can reheat them in the microwave for about 10 seconds.

These are scrumptious and the recipe is a keeper. I had shredded 4-cheese Mexican blend on hand plus shredded parmesan, so I made 1/2 the recipe and weighed out 4oz of mixed cheese. I had walnuts on hand so used those - you get the picture. They're so good. That dash of cayenne pepper really perks them up. I'm thinking of making them with 1/2 cheddar & 1/2 cream cheese. I love to experiment. PS: Sprinkle a few drops of water on the cookie sheet. Helps hold the parchment in place.

These were great. I used 1/4# NO FAT Cheddar Cheese and 1/8# "Real" Cheddar Cheese and 1/8# shredded Parmesan Cheese, (instead of the 1/2# Cheddar Cheese). My husband is a Diabetic but does have to watch his fat intake. I also used I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S NOT BUTTER, instead of the good stuff. They were NOT greasy at all. This is a great cookie and a WONDERFUL snack! Thanks Yvonne
