Number of Servings: 36

Ingredients

    3/8 cup Crisco butter-flavored shortening
    3/8 cup ground flax seed (must be ground in order to be absorbed by the body)
    + 1/8 (5/8) cup Splenda brown sugar blend
    2 Tbsp skim milk
    1 Tbsp vanilla extract
    2 large egg whites
    1 cup all purpose flour
    1 tsp salt
    tsp baking soda
    1.5 c semi-sweet chocolate chips

Tips

If you prefer a chocolate chip cookie with nuts, instead of using 1.5 cups of chocolate chips, you can use 1 cup of chocolate chips plus one cup of your favorite chopped nuts.


Directions

1. HEAT oven to 375F.
2. COMBINE shortening, brown sugar, milk and vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed of electric mixer until well blended. Beat in egg. Combine flour, salt and baking soda. Mix into shortening mixture until just blended. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.

3. DROP by rounded measuring tablespoonfuls 3 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheet.

4. BAKE 8 to 10 minutes for chewy cookies, or 11 to 13 minutes for crisp cookies. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet on a cooling rack. Remove cookies to rack to cool completely.

BAR COOKIES

1. HEAT oven to 375F. Follow recipe above to prepare dough. Spray a 13 x 9-inch pan with no-stick cooking spray. Spread dough evenly in pan.

2. BAKE 19 to 21 minutes or until top is golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean and center feels slightly firm to the touch. Cool completely before cutting into bars.

LARGE ROUNDS

1. HEAT oven to 375F. Follow recipe above to prepare dough. Spray small area in center of baking sheet with no-stick cooking spray. Cover with 12-inch square of foil.

2. PLACE one-fourth of dough in center of foil. Form into a small circle with spatula or rubber scraper. Spray 12-inch square of wax paper with no-stick cooking spray. Place sprayed side down on top of dough. Flatten with round cake pan or pie pan to form a 7-inch circle. Remove wax paper.

3. BAKE 9 to 10 minutes or until light golden color. Cool 5 minutes on baking sheet on a cooling rack. Remove to rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining cookie dough.
