Every year, I get together with my mom and my sister to bake Christmas cookies. We usually pick a Saturday in December and bake all day long, and then split the cookies. It is a lot of fun, but every year, we tend to make the same cookies. This year, I am still trying to lose the rest of this weight, so I want to find new recipes that have fewer calories, but still taste yummy. I found this recipe, and I am excited to try it out.
1 ⅛ cups flour
1⁄2 tsp salt
1⁄2 tsp baking soda
1⁄2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1⁄4 cup + 2 Tbsp Truvia® Baking Blend
1⁄2 tsp vanilla
1 large egg
1 cup (6 oz.) chocolate chips
1.Preheat oven to 375° F.
2.Combine flour, salt and baking soda in a small bowl.
3.Beat butter, Truvia® Baking Blend and vanilla (and optional molasses) in a separate large mixing bowl. Mix in egg.
4.Gradually stir in flour mixture. Stir in chocolate chips.
5.Drop rounded tablespoons on cookie sheets and press down to slightly flatten.
6.Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned.
Don't they sound and look good? I am interested to see how they turn out using the Truvia® Baking Blend. It is supposed to have the same texture in recipes as sugar, but with 75% fewer calories and twice the sweetness. Truvia® comes in a 1.5 pound closeable bag with an easy to use pour spout, which is enough to make many yummy desserts. I am going to try using Truvia® in some of my favorite cookie recipes this year, but I could use some new recipes. Feel free to share your favorite recipe with me, and I'll let you know if I use it. Just remember, I love anything with chocolate and/or peanut butter. And you can Visit the Truvia® website for more tips and information on Truvia® Baking Blend.
