Of all the cookies I baked these were probably my husband's favorite. I would have preferred them with Stevia because I don't really care for the "cold" feeling that Erythritol leaves on my tongue. It's almost a mint sensation without the flavor.
To me, Stevia has no after taste and it has always been my favorite sweetener. I know some of my friends complain about the taste and my husband HATES it all together, but I don't understand it.
When it comes to using a sweetener in anything I make I usually end up making two batches. One for my husband and one for myself. I know there are a few other things we can try but at this point we've only baked with the two we already know we like. I purchased some Monk Fruit In The Raw but haven't had the time to research it or taste it. I'll let you know what we think of it and if it makes an excellent replacement sugar as soon as we settle down enough to check it out.
Like all of the recipes, I share feel free to use the ingredients you like best and make it your own.
