Getting pamelas cookies to spread out thin can be accomplished by adding an extra egg. I discovered this after I eliminated sugar from her cookie recipe and discovered my cookies no longer spread. I then added an extra egg and voila perfect gluten free, sugar free cookies. If any one else is interested Trimedica Slim Sweet tastes just like sugar with no after taste and I find it substitutes and behaves just like sugar in just about all things including sushi and mysore pak. I have had many successes with pamela's but I'm having trouble with the whole foods version. I want to learn the whole foods version because pamla's is not lactose free. How much baking soda/baking powder do you add to it for cookies?
