LOOKING for: cookies or munchies for diabetic

At church this morning we received the name of a nursing home patient that doesn't have family or friends. We will be giving her small gifts at Christmas, and would like to include some home-made treats. Could anyone share a recipe for cookies or munchies appropriate for a diabetic diet? I could get the store-bought cookies, but have heard they don't have much taste, and anyway, home-made shows someone cares. Thank you in advance--and happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

How about some spiced nuts. I make cookie baskets for our customers and always include spiced nuts for those who can not eat sugar, they are always well recieved and appreciated. I'll look for my recipe and send it along! Gina

Here is my Spiced Nut Recipe:
Spiced Nuts

2-TBSPs. Butter
3- cups nuts ( I use a combo of walnuts, pecans,peanuts and almonds)
1-TBSP. Worcestershire sauce
1-tsp. Chili powder
-tsp. Garlic salt
- tsp Cayenne pepper

Melt butter in pan in a 300 degree oven. Add Worcestershire sauce and nuts. Mix well. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove nuts from oven and sprinkle with spices.

Thank you! Ginger, the site you referenced has a shortbread recipe that will do just fine. And obxgina, I hadn't thought of spiced nuts. We are knee-deep in pecans here in Texas, and the recipe sounds so good I may make a batch for us! The nuts will keep well, too, in a pretty little tin I found. It's beginning to look like a very merry Christmas for some little elderly lady!
