Tried and true diabetic cookie recipes??

Does anyone have any??

My son and I are doing a curriculum which has a different theme every week. Well coming up (okay it is in December) we are going to be doing cookies as a theme. My thought is that we can make cookies (math, science, sorting... all sorts of great things in there!!) and send them to the grandparents and have them eat some of these cookies on Skype so DS can see that what he made, made it to his grandparents. (All grandparents are far away and all but one uses Skype).

The only problem with my idea is that my MIL is diabetic and I just posted on the weight loss board that she really doesn't know what to eat. DH and I both feel like those around her (FIL and BIL) are enabling her to dig herself into an early grave. Obviously I don't want to add to this. So I would have to make special cookies just for her.

Are there diabetic cookies that taste "normal" or is it true that you just really have to watch what you eat when you are a diabetic and that I should really just exclude MIL from this activity? (She wouldn't know as she doesn't talk to any of my 3 dads or my mom.)

Thank you for your help!

No. Cookies taste like cookies because of the butter and sugar in them. Fake sugar doesn't bake well at all. Splenda does the best but it is only ok. I am a diabetic and it is a common misconception that diabetics can't eat sugar. Everything is OK in moderation. What is important is that a diabetic plans what they eat to allow for the carbohydrate (sugar, flour, starchy veg, etc) in foods. Sending her sugar substitute cookies will still have significant carb content just with the other ingredients.
