Mix all three ingredients with a spoon until well combined. Drop by heaping teaspoonful or even tablespoonful on an ungreased cookie sheet. Use a fork to squish them down to the height you like. You can make the traditional crisscross pattern with your fork or vary it. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes.
You can decide how browned you like your cookies. Let them rest on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before you remove them or, if they are medium rare, they might fall apart. I like mine chewy so that's how I do them. This recipe will make about a dozen cookies depending on how large you make yours.

I was wondering what Splenda is? I'm in Melbourne Australia and we don't have a product of that name.
I gather it's some kind of shortening? If so, could you use butter instead?.
Editor's Note: Splenda is an artificial sweetener. I don't know if you have a comparable product in Australia. Here's a link: http://www.splenda.com/
Splenda is made with Sucralose (generic name) I don't know of any other products using it as a sweetner outright, but more and more products are being used with it. To date it is the safest "carb free" sugar. It is sugar that has been treated to be carb free. I give it to my kids, don't use anything with Nutrasweet or Acesulfame-Potassium. They are both too iffy. You may be able to order through an on-line grocer or through Splenda website itself.
