I'd hate to be a bad influence on you when you're trying to be good, but I couldn't resist sending you this link I just got in an email. It's not for a cookie, but a fruit pizza. I've got to try it. http://pillsbury.com/recipes/showRecipe.aspx?rID=44512

I will not be buying the Pillsbury sugar free cookies, the price is outrageous. I can make 4 or 5 dozen for that price. And if you look you can find sugar free recipes, so why spend so much?

No, I wouldn't buy these cookies as I find that price exhorbitant! I am dieting and prefer a lower calorie cookie, but I will bake my own! I like to use honey or other things like applesauce to sweeten rather than artificial sweetners. I like to control what goes into my body! There is mixed reviews/studies about the artificial sweetners, so I try to limit the amount of artificial sweetners I take into my body.

I've read that artificial sweetners actually make you gain weight.

I also like the real thing, if I'm sure it doesn't contain, aspartime then I might consider it for my husband, because he is a diabetic, and the poor soul can't have real sugar. But then he is not to perturbed about it, he is more a savory kind of guy!

No, I wouldn't buy them. I hate anything that says "sugar free". It's sweeter than regular sugar. And it tastes horrible. It just tastes so fake and yucky to me. I'd rather bake my own cookies. I get to use the ingredients I want. I substitute sugar with honey and applesauce to sweeten it and I use whole wheat flour and I can make healthy option cookies. It's more work but it's cheaper and healthier in my opinion.

I agree. I hate the super sweet taste.

Personally, I wouldn't buy them, because nearly everything that is sugar free makes up for it by using fake sugar of some sort. Fake sugar, no matter the form (aspartame, Nutrasweet, Splenda, sucralose, or whatever they call it) gives me severe migraines. So I avoid things that say "sugar free" because they are far worse for me than things with sugar.
