    Very easy... I made a sour cream vanilla cake, added a can of apple pie filling, but cut the apple pieces small. I added vanilla, cinnamon, some butter, some brown sugar, and about 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs (give or take). It turned out delicious. It was so moist!

    I made SO MANY THINGS with the SomerSweet, none of its ingredients were Banned so I have yet to figure out why she had to stop making it. Another interesting sweetener line is WheyLow, they have Granulated, a Granulated specifically developed for diabetics, Powdered sugar, Brown sugar, one developed just for making Ice Cream, and a Maple one that works great in granular form or as a syrup. All have a very low glycemic index and taste really good!

    Thank you for letting me know!! I would love to make some sugar-free cookies that actually have the same sweetness as those old sweeteners.

    Some new cookies. Orders for cookies have slowed down for the summer, but hoping it picks up soon. Getting more orders for cupcakes and other desserts though. Cookies are Trolls, Paw Patrol, school, and furniture that's in the showroom where I work.

    They were! :) Everyone thought it was pretty cool that the cookies matched what they sold.

    People are very nostalgic and sentimental. Your cookies or not just cookies, they are so much more as they commemorate significant moments in people’s lives. There’s nothing generic in your cookies. :)

    My latest order is for a syndicated radio host... "Cigar Dave." The event is being sponsored by Gurkha Cigars. I have about 30 more to do by Wednesday, so you know how I'll be spending my days. lol

    @Sharzi
    OMG! I swear these are your BEST! They are beautiful illustrations, they look like the illustrations printed in magazines like The New Yorker. You really put out a quality product.

    @Sharzi, it’s too bad you can’t charge more. These are just exquisite.

    I know. That's why they call starving artists. lol I was a freelance artist and writer for many years, but it's always feast or famine. Same with cookies except I can eat those. lol

    Love that parrot!

    You need to find a way to advertise your products in big markets like New York where there’s more people with lots of disposable income. The good thing about your cookies is they have a longer shelf life and they can be shipped.
