Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cookies

Since my dad has diabetes I am always on the lookout for sweet treats that are healthy for him to eat. I saw these on Paula Deen's show (I love Paula Deen) and just knew I had to try them. They are great, super easy, and I can't wait to make them for my daddy!

1 cup low fat peanut butter, creamy
1 1/3 baking sugar replacement (like Splenda)
1 egg
1 t vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, 1 cup sugar replacement, the egg, and vanilla, and stir well with a spoon. Roll the dough into balls the size of walnuts. Place the balls on the prepared baking sheet. With a fork, dipped in sugar replacement to prevent sticking, press a crisscross design on each cookie. Bake for 12 minutes, remove from the oven, and sprinkle the cookies with some of the remaining sugar replacement. Cool slightly before removing from pan.
