    1/2 C. Smart Balance Light Buttery Spread
    3/4 C. Splenda
    1/2 C. Unsweetened Apple Sauce
    1/4 C. Egg Substitute, Room Temperature
    2 tsp. Anise Extract
    2 1/2 C. Whole Wheat Flour
    2 Tbsp. Wheat Germ
    2 Tbsp. Flax Seed Meal
    1/4 tsp. Baking Powder
    1/8 tsp. Salt
    1/2 C. Skim Milk, or as Needed
    1 C. Sesame Seeds


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. In a large bowl, cream together the Smart Balance & Splenda until smooth. Beat in the apple sauce, egg substitute, & anise extract until well blended. Sift together the flour, wheat germ, flax seed meal, baking powder, & salt; stir into the butter mixture until well incorporated. If you are using a stand mixer, let the dough mix for another minute to add lightness to the dough. The dough will be soft, but will hand roll easily.
3. Pinch off pieces of dough slightly smaller than a walnut, & roll them into small logs. Dip in milk, then roll in sesame seeds. Place cookies one inch apart on a cookie sheet. Cookies will not spread very much.
4. Bake for 17-20 min. in the preheated oven, or until bottom & sides of cookies are lightly toasted. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
