diabetic discuits

Trying my hand at something a wee bit different. Not bad! Tasty too.


Serves 10-12

1/2 cup 60-70% vegetable oil spread

1/4 cup softened butter

2/3 cup sugar or sugar substitute such as Splenda

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 egg white

2 cups all purpose flour

1.5 tsp finely grated orange peel

40 dark chocolate stars or alternative


1. Preheat oven to 170 deg.

2. In a large bowl, combine veg oil spread and butter beat with an electric mixer on medium speed, add sugar, baking powder and salt, beat until light and fluffy.

3. Beat in egg white and as much flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon stir in remaining flour and orange peel.

4. Shape dough into 1 inch balls, place balls apart onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake for 7-9 mins or until edges are set and bottoms are very lightly browned.

5. Immediately once out of oven press a chocolate star into the centre of each cookie. Transfer cookies to wire rack to cool. YUM!
