Cooking time: 10 minutes


Preheat oven to 165°C. Lightly oil a cookie sheet and set aside.

Blend butter, SPLENDA® Granulated, and vanilla in a medium sized mixing bowl until butter is softened. Add egg substitute, lemon juice and zest. Mix until just combined. Add flour, cornmeal, baking powder and nutmeg. Mix using a hand mixer on low speed (or by hand) until dough is formed. Do not over-mix.

Remove dough from bowl and divide in half. Roll each half into a log approximately 1 inch thick in diameter. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze 1 - 2 hours, until dough chills and becomes firm.

Remove dough from freezer, unwrap and cut each log into slices approximately ¼ inch thick. Place slices on prepared cookie sheet.

Bake in a preheated 165°C oven 8 - 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
