Effort:Easy

8 packages artificial sweetener -- to taste

1 serving Creamcheese according to package

1 Serving Ricotta cheese according to package

1 ounce walnuts -- crushed

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cup atkins bake mix

2 eggs

2 tablespoons butter

How to Prepare:

The bake mix and butter can be adjusted by using more or less of either according to your desired consistency of the batter.Mix everything together and bake on a greased cookie sheet for 20-25 minutes or until browned (I usually flip them over halfway through so they don't get too done on the bottom). I set the oven (I cook them in a toaster oven) at 350.The counts I'm giving you are approximate, not exact, but you can just add the carbs as you add the ingredients to the mix.The cookies are a bit soft so they also make a good muffin mix if you have the tins. Enjoy.

NOTES : Counts for cream cheese and ricotta cheese not included.

NOTE. Most Ingredients in these recipes can be bought in good health food shops and grocery store. If you have trouble finding something, feel free to exchange, but keep track of the carbs.
