Number of Servings: 48

Ingredients

    1 cup heart-healthy margarine
    1-1/2 cups white sugar (or sugar substitute)
    1/2 cup egg beaters
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 teaspoon lemon extract
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 pinch salt

Directions

1. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and lemon extracts. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; gradually blend into the creamed mixture to form a soft dough. Cover or wrap dough, and refrigerate overnight.
2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). On a floured surface, roll the dough out 1/4 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters. Place cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
3. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.

Makes 48 servings (1 serving = 1 cookie).

    I ran the ingredients and came up with these #'s, with regular white sugar 61 calories per cookie, and 37 cal per cookie with sugar subsitute.

    If you don't like LEMON, try Banana flavoring, or Orange, etc, the choices are unlimited and can really add variety to your choices.

    Sounds good, but I am wondering whether the calorie count is for the sugar version or the sugar substitute version. - 6/12/09

    "Heart-healthy" Margarine? There is no such thing. - 1/22/14

    Why must everyone put lemon flavoring on everything? Also, 52 calories seems kind of high for a small cookie (and who on here would eat just one?)? - 6/12/09
