COOKIESSSSSSSS!!!!!

Ok, I’m done now. You’ll love these cookies because they’re soft, moist, fluffy AND missing half the fat. If that’s not a sales pitch, I don’t know what is! Seriously, this is the classic adapted to remove half the fat. I tried to remove it all but you know what? Sometimes, a little butter is a necessary indulgence in life. You can bet your bottom dollar on that! I rolled each cookie in sugar before baking to make them pretty and give them a crunchy top to bite through, but you don’t have to do that. It’s totally up to you.

I realize it’s a new year and many of you have resolutions to look after so you CAN indulge in a cookie or two here without killing yourself mentally with guilt. Trust me, you need a cookie now and again, sometimes out of necessity, sometimes out of want ūüôā

You’ll need:

60 minutes

  • 2 1/4¬†cups all-purpose flour
  • 1¬†teaspoon baking soda
  • 1¬†teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup non-fat greek yogurt (Chobani is my choice)
  • 3/4¬†cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4¬†cup packed brown sugar
  • 1¬†teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2¬†large eggs
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (mint chips, pb cups, nuts, etc… go wild!)
  • more sugar for rolling (if you want, it’s optional)
  1. Pre-heat¬†oven to 375¬į F.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl.
  3. Beat butter, yogurt, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy.
  4. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  5. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chips.
  6. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
  7. You can also make balls of dough and roll in more sugar for an extra crunchy bite to your cookie. (optional)
  8. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
