Tips: Choose Splenda Brown Sugar Blend as a sugar substitute. Follow package directions to use product amount equivalent to 1/2 cup brown sugar. Reduce all-purpose flour to 1/2 cup when using the sugar substitute.

To make ahead, prepare as directed. Store cookies in the refrigerator for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 2 months.

To toast whole nuts or large pieces, spread in a shallow baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350 degrees F oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until golden, shaking pan once or twice.
