DIRECTIONS

Sugar Free Cookies

  • With electric mixer, whisk butter and Lite&Sweet on medium until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes). Add eggs and salt and continue mixing. Slowly add evaporated milk, vanilla extract, and vanilla bean until combined.
  • Reduce mixer speed to low and add flour until combined.  Divide dough in two, cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Sugar Free Filling

  • Place Lite&Sweet, chocolate chips, milk, and salt into sauce pan. Heat gently until chocolate is melted then cool the mix in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  • Using a spatula, spread desired amount of chocolate filling on each cookie and top with another cookie to make a sandwich. Repeat process with remaining cookies and filling.
