Chocolate Chip cookies are one of my favorite cookies and always have been. I've been trying to eat healthier and follow the Weight Watchers plan as much as I can. Yes I do know I'm writing a blog about desserts. Occasionally maybe I'll post a healthier dessert, or maybe just a not as bad for you dessert. Last night I felt the need for a chocolate chip cookie as I used to make them almost weekly and now I haven't had one in two or three months. I decided to try to make it not as bad for me used a recipe from Splenda for Choco-Chip Cookies. I made the little balls about a tablespoon as the recipe called for but still ended up with 30 cookies when I had already cut the recipe in half. So, by my calculations they ended up being only about 1.25 points a piece. Not bad...even if it is a smaller cookie. I thought about sitting something next to the cookies as I hastily took the picture this morning but then it quickly flew out of my mind. See the thing is I was packaging up the rest of the ones I had baked (I had some in the freezer : ) ) and taking them to my parents house. Granted I still have maybe 12 in the freezer but I'm ok with that. : ). Now the problem is that I like them better frozen, as I've always loved frozen or refrigerated cookie dough for that matter. I don't think I'll bake anymore of them this round. I'll just eat them one by one or two by two until they're gone. That is why I wanted to get a quick picture. They ended up being about 2" in diameter but fluffier than I'd hoped. I like a chewy cookie and this was definitely a fluffy cookie. Although, it did have a hint of a crunch around the edges and that helped so it wasn't too fluffy and cloud-like. I don't think this will be my standby but it was good enough for a treat.
