    So I took Engrossed's "Best Oatmeal Cookies" and made it low-fat, with her permission of course. Prep time includes chilling.

      I like the taste of these cookies and the fat and sugar numbers are great. The only thing that I did differently was to dip the glass bottom into Splenda or cinnamon for pressing them down. I chilled the dough for 2 hrs. These cookies will not spread at all and even though I pressed them flat to the 1/4 inch ask for they didn't stay flat. They rose and some split at the sides. Even at the minimum 10 min baking they are on the hard side (good for dunking). I got 44 cookies. Made for Photo Tag. *EDIT*: After being in the container for awhile the cookies have softened and are quite yummy.
