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!!!

Pam's Pumpkin Cookies

Hey everyone! These are yummy chewey cookies. Thanx to my niece Pam for these. Like she always says......if the batter is good, the finished product will be good. She's so right!!!!

Makes 48 Cookies
1 Cookie = 1 PointsPlus™

5 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp salt
4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp ginger
1 15-oz can pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie stuff)
2 cups unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup fat-free egg substitute
2 cups Splenda granulated

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix all ingredients together.

Place about a teaspoonful on a cookie sheet and 'smoosh' it down (aka flatten it....I like smoosh). They're NOT going to expand (and neither is your waistline if you don't overindulge in these yummy cookies!).

Bake @13 minutes.

Cool on a rack.


Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court! *The PointsPlus™ values 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)!
