Even better cookies!

I had to make more cookies today, because we ate so many we didn't have enough for the kids luncheon tomorrow. This time I altered the recipe a bit with better results. These were softer and not as greasy (I cut the fat in half).

Here's the recipe for "Egg /Dairy / Corn Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies:"
1/2 c + 1T margarine, softened (or 1 c shortening)
3/4 c white sugar (I used turbinado)
3/4 c brown sugar
1/2 c unsweetened applesauce
2 t vanilla

2 1/2 c all purpose flour (I used fresh ground soft white flour)
1/2 c oats
1 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1 t salt

2 c chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (325 degrees for convection). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine, brown sugar and white sugar until light and fluffy. Add applesauce and vanilla .Combine the flour, oats, baking soda, powder and salt; gradually mix into the creamed mixture. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 12-15 minutes in the preheated oven, until light brown. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
I will say, if you can tolerate dairy, use butter instead. Nothing is as good as real butter in chocolate chip cookies.

These sound (and look) very yummy! How about the points value? ;) Probably too much to think about, huh?

Love you - glad these are working for you!
