Hi and welcome to Discuss Cooking

It's difficult to make sugar-free cookies because sugar does more than add sweetness - it contributes to browning and structure. So it's usually recommended to use part sugar and part sugar substitute. Here's more information from the American Diabetes Association: http://www.diabetes.org/food-and-fit...bstitutes.html
Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.

According to your profile, you live in Iraq (or rather, Kurdish Iraq). Can you be a little more specific about the types of cookies you like?

Also, I don't know what sugar substitutes you have available to you in that part of the world. For example, are you able to buy stevia where you live?

One other suggestion I would make. Wheat flour can have just as much of an impact on your blood glucose as granulated sugar. You might look for recipes online that use nut flour or coconut flour. I like almond flour myself, and almonds are widely available.

With that in mind, here's a recipe that I like:
Keto Almond Crescent Cookies - Low Carb & Gluten Free

The recipe has only 7 ingredients, and is very easy to make. They're not the prettiest cookies in the world, but they taste great.
