Chocolate Chip Cookies - small batch Recipe

Chocolate Chip Cookies - small batch Recipe

“I came up with this recipe myself,” writes Bethany Thayer of Troutville, Virginia. “After trying several low-fat chocolate chip cookie recipes that were puffy and cake-like, I experimented some and came up with these.” Good-for-you walnuts give them a great crunch, too.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 10 min./batch YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat margarine
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1. In a large bowl, lightly cream the margarine and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in yogurt and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.
