Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (w/ less calories, fat, & cholesterol)

Introduction

By using a cookie mix, these cookies are extremely easy to make. Pumpkin gives traditional chocolate chip cookies an orange Fall hue while adding vitamin A and a serving of veggies. And by using a butter substitute and cornstarch instead of egg, you'll save nearly 40 calories, 4g of fat, and 27mg of cholesterol per serving.

Ingredients

    1 pkg Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
    1 tbsp cornstarch
    3 tbsp water
    3 tbsp I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, Light Spread (softened)
    1/3 cup canned pumpkin
    2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

Directions

Heat oven to 375F degrees (or 350F for dark or nonstick cookie sheet).

Mix cornstarch and water in small bowl until cornstarch has dissolved completely. Stir softened butter and cornstarch mix with in medium bowl. Stir in cookie mix until soft dough forms.

Stir in canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice until completed mixed.

Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. (For 2 dozen larger cookies, drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls.)

Bake 8-10 min for regular size cookies or 11-13 for larger cookies or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute before removing from cookie sheet.

Makes 36 small cookies or 24 larger cookies. One regular serving equals 2 small cookies. However, I prefer to make larger cookies and have 2 of those, so please note that the nutritional info is for 12 servings (2 larger cookies).
