I found this on a diabetic recipe site and have made them several times since. They don't taste low sugar and produce a very soft flavorful cookie. I hope you'll like them, too!
- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup margarine
- 1⁄2 cup sugar (I use 1/2 cup Splenda)
- 1⁄4 cup light brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1⁄4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 tablespoons 1% low-fat milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1⁄2 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Lightly coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.
- In a large bowl, with an electric mixer at medium speed, beat the margarine until fluffy.
- Add the sugars, egg, applesauce, milk, and vanilla and beat one minute.
- Stir in chocolate chips and the flour mixture.
- Drop the dough by teaspoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet and bake until lightly browned, 14-16 minutes.
- Remove and cool on a baking rack.
This recipe was amazing! They come out of the oven extremely soft, and stay that way. A great low cholesterol recipe, that tastes good... AMAZING!
This recipe is SUPERB! I have a friend with Lyme's Disease; he cannot have a lot of sugar, and he LOVES these! I've made the recipe several times and usually triple my batches because they go so quickly. My 16 yr. old SUGAR FREAK loves them, too, so this is a special favorite. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
I gave these cookies 5 stars because I love them. My husband doesn't but more for me. This is because I have a very German Norweigean family and as you can imagine, fattening sugary food have been passed down. I'm a Diabetic, I can no longer eat those things. So...I find them awesome, and more for me! I do want to say that this does not make 36 cookies when you choose 36. I'd say more like 24. Even with a medium Pampered Chef cookie scooper I always use. Plus beware, these feel almost like a cake cookie...if you've ever had those, there are light and moist.
