Toll House Cookies, The Splenda Recipe

Most of my life included some type of family event with the feature being my Mom’s chocolate chip cookies. She’s always been a crowd pleasing baker and her chocolate chip cookies are the show-stopper. You can imagine, when prepping for weight loss surgery, I was nervous about not being able to have them. Well, Thanks to the good of GOODNESS!!! Splenda was invented!! This recipe makes up the delicious goodness of childhood without the sugar and while they aren’t going to help you lose weight…they’ll make you smile. Eat just a few. Share the rest with a large group of friends.
