Recipe by Sheepie87
This is basically the recipe from the back of the Toll House bag, but I tweaked it so that it would have less fat and fewer calories. The addition of applesauce is actually really nice-it blends well with the cinnamon-y, buttery taste of the scotchies. The only thing is that you'll have to increase the cooking time.
- 1 1⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt

- 3⁄4 cup brown sugar (packed)
- 3⁄4 cup Splenda granular
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
