The existence of diabetic cookies ensures that diabetics can continue to indulge after diagnosis. They simply need to ensure that they follow recipes for diabetic cookies that do not violate their dietary restrictions.

Some diabetic cookies sound fancy to the ear, but are easy to make. They include the following diabetic meringue cookies. For these cookies, you will need two egg whites, an eighth of a teaspoon of salt, a quarter teaspoon of cream of tartar, half a teaspoon of grated lemon rind, half a teaspoon of vanilla extract, a quarter cup of one-for-one sugar substitute, two and a half tablespoons of apricot jam, and two tablespoons of almond slivers.

Begin by preheating the oven to 275° Fahrenheit. Then line a baking sheet with foil and set it aside. Whip the egg whites in a bowl until they are foam-like. Add the salt and the cream of tartar to this meringue, and mix thoroughly. Then add the vanilla extract and grated lemon rind and mix further. Next, add the sugar substitute to the mixture slowly, mixing it in as you do so. Continue mixing until the mixture is thick and even.

Divide the mixture into 14 cookie shapes on the baking sheet, and allow them to bake for one hour. Subsequently, turn the oven off, making sure to leave the cookies inside and undisturbed for a two-hour period. Afterward, remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool. Coat each cookie’s top surface with half a teaspoon of apricot jam, then sprinkle a teaspoon of raw almond slivers on top. This recipe makes a total of 7 servings.
