1 pt. Chocolate Chip Cookies

10 Jun

Weight watchers friends will appreciate this. The other day I had a hankering for some chocolate chip cookies. But I wanted them to be low in fat. So, I did a search on the Internet and found the most amazing 1 point chocolate chip cookies. Here's the recipe, courtesy of Low Fat Cooking on About.com:

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup miniature chocolate chips

PREPARATION:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars togeter with an electric mixer until creamy. Add egg white and vanilla and mix well until blended.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine flou, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder. Gradually add flour mixture to egg and sugar. Don't worry if the dough seems a little crumbly at first. Add a tsp of water if needed to get the right consistency. Stir in choclate chips.
  4. Drop cookie dough by the teaspoonful onto a cookie sheet.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes (I found that in my crazy oven 8 minutes was perfect). Cook on cookie sheet for 1 minute, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.

The recipe says it makes 30 cookies, but I only got about 20. Also, we were a little impatient when they came out of the oven, so Jason and I ate a cookie within the first minute! They were wonderful; a little crispy on the outside but soft and chewy on the inside. My idea of a perfect cookie. And for only 1 point!
