Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Cinnamon Candy Cookies

Makes 38 Cookies
2 Cookies = 2 PointsPlus™

3/4 cup Splenda granulated
1/4 cup light butter, softened
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3//8 cup fat-free egg substitute
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup cinnamon-flavored candy (those little red round ones)
1/3 cup chopped pecans
2 TBSP Splenda granulated
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350º.

In a large bowl, beat 3/4 cup Splenda granulated, light butter, vanilla and egg substitute with an electric beater on medium speed until creamy. Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Stir in cinnamon-flavored candy and pecans.

In a small bowl, mix 2 TBSP Splenda granulated and 1 tsp cinnamon.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in the cinnamon/Splenda mixture. On ungreased cookie sheet, place balls 1-inch apart.

Bake 10 minutes. IMMEDIATELY remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

MY SPIN: There really isn't one! I made these bigger than the recipe said because I didn't want/need a bunch of these at my house because I would eat them all!!! Remember, I try to bake around my WW meetings and everyone at my Friday meeting liked them. So I hope you do as well!!!

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court! *The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark.*

Loving Life(time)!
