These truly do taste much like Old-Fashioned Ice-Box Cookies only with a lot less sugar. Pecans add a nice crunch.

What you'll need

  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar replacement
  • 1/4 cup granulated fructose
  • 2 tbsp. skim milk
  • 1 med egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans


  • Step 1
    Using an electric mixer, thoroughly cream together margarine, sugar replacement, and fructose. Beat in skim milk, egg, and vanilla. Gradually add flour and salt. Stir to completely blend. Divide dough in half.
  • Step 2
    Shape each half into a 6-inch roll. Roll dough in the chopped pecans. Wrap each roll in wax paper. Chill dough in refrigerator overnight.
