Stuck in a Chinese bakery?!

Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies
My Chinese cookie said I was stuck in a Chinese bakery!! I'm thinking that there are worst places to be then in a bakery.
My Blood Sugar number for today was 106. Not too bad. I found this recipe on diabeticlivingonline. I think this will satisfy both my need to bake and not get me to far off track.
