  30. Spoon 1/2 tsp. preserves into the center of each cookie. Place the cookie sheet into the oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Note: I prefer a softer cookie, so I do not bake them until the edges turn golden brown.

  32. Allow cookies to cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheet. Then place them on a wire rack to cool thoroughly. When packing them into a container, I recommend not stacking them directly on top of each other, as they will stick together.

Did you refrigerate the dough for an hour? If you didn't, it would cause them to spread out like that.

Would substituting Splenda for sugar (1/10th tsp of Splenda = 1 cup sugar) affect the texture negatively? For some pastries, sugar is necessary for because it caramelizes and can provide a crunch or firmness upon cooling.

If texture is affected, I wonder what Splenda-to-sugar ratio is good.
