I am looking for diabetic cookie recipes.

Google Splenda recipes. Also read about cooking with Splenda. It is really not cup for cup as advertised. I have found by trial and error that you can use 1/2 of what it calls for.
I've found that diabetic cookie recipes mention portions so small that you might as well use half whole wheat flour with half unbleached white flour, sub a little less brown sugar for white sugar and make a smaller regular cookie.
Eat slowly and figure out how to increase the fiber content (make oatmeal cookies).

Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 stick butter, softened
1 stick butter substitute, softened (Like smart balance)
3/4 cup Splenda (Or Altern, Walmarts brand)
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter, butter substitute, and both sugar substitutes. Add vanilla and egg. Beat well. Add flour, baking soda, and salt. Dough will be real thick, almost like a biscuit dough. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
Roll dough into small balls, about the size of a quarter. Flatten into small disks. Place on ungreased cookie sheet, about an inch apart.
Bake for approximately 8 minutes, center will be a little soft. Do not overbake. Place on rack to cool.

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
In a large bowl, with an electric mixer at medium speed, beat the margarine until fluffy. Add the sugars, egg, applesauce, milk, and vanilla and beat 1 minute. Slowly add the flour mixture and beat until combined, about 1 minute. Stir in the chocolate chips.
