I love baking and baking light -- cutting fat wherever possible. But baking light cookies is a challenge. My first experiment was chocolate chip cookies, without the lard/butter, but instead the "don't bake with it" fat-free butter. Ya know (or even if you don't) that stuff turns dough into batter! So, what do you do? ADD MORE FLOUR, of course . . . and more . . . and more. Well, fresh from the oven, these little soft, warm morsels were AWESOME! I felt a wave of superiority sweep over me . . . I had done what couldn't be done — a light chocolate chip cookie. Putting them onto a plate, I couldn't wait to take them into work the next day. FORTUNATELY, the next morning I couldn't resist temptation and decided to snitch one . . . but it slipped from my hand and hit the floor...and rolled . . . it didn't even chip (though the floor may have). I picked that puppy up and it was hard...REAL hard. I dropped it on the floor again...nothing. I smacked it on the counter. Nothing, though my fingers hurt from where THEY caught the edge of the counter! Using both hands and a lot of force, I was finally able to snap it in half. I decided that these would probably be best served with coffee . . . and allowed to soak for a couple of minutes before each bite!
