About Me

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!!!

Julie's Carrot Cake Cookies

Hey everyone! Julie made these delicious cookies and brought them to the WW meeting last nite. Thanx Julie!! You rock!!!

Julie's Carrot Cake Cookies
Makes 28 Cookies
1 Cookie = 2 PointsPlus™



6 Tablespoons country crock spread light
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup grated carrots
1/2 cup raisins and chopped pecans

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla; mix well. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Gradually add to creamed mixture until blended. Stir in carrots, raisins and pecans.

Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 in apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 325 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and cookies are set. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks.

Yield: 28 cookies

I didn't put the chopped pecans in it which will add PointsPlus™ value.

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

Later!
Loving Life(time)!
Jan
