These were awful!!!! I halved the batch and after forcing my little brother to try one ate the entire batch!!!! IT WAS AWFUL! but in a good way of course. I used splenda brown sugar, and normal sugar as a replacement, and used my smart balance light butter spread instead of the butter to decalorize it even more and it was sooooo good. Mine turned out really puffy, which i hate, but after doing some research :P, i think this was due to me halving the recipe but using a whole egg, using cold butter and eggs, chilling the dough before baking (which made it more rollable) and maybe using too much baking soda. I also didn't find it to be very sweet, which I kind of liked, but I think next time I will had a tablespoon or two of honey, or some liquid sweetener like that. Also, I think I overbaked mine with 8 minutes. Next time I'm going to try 6 and see how it goes. I didn't feel like getting out my mixer so I softened the butter and just kind of whisked it by hand. I also just kind of stuck the dough in the freezer for a couple minutes to chill it thinking it would be easier to make round and roll in sugar and stuff, but next time after I put the dough on the cookie sheets I'm going to let it warm to room temp. to see if they turn out flatter and chewier. These are officially my new favorite healthy cookie!!!! Thank you so much!!!
