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!!!

Sorghum Ginger Cookies

What do you do on a rainy Monday? Bake some cookies!

SORGHUM GINGER COOKIES
Makes 72 Cookies
1 Cookie = 1 PointsPlus™


1 cup Splenda granulated
1/2 cup sorghum (or molasses)
1/4 cup light butter, softened
1/4 cup fat-free egg substitute
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 TBSP finely chopped crystallized ginger
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup 99% fat-free vanilla or plain yogurt


Preheat oven to 375º.

In a large bowl, mix Splenda, sorghum, butter and egg substitute.



Stir in remaining ingredients until well blended.



Place @1 tsp of cookie dough on ungreased cookie sheet. “Smoosh” down to flatten.


Bake @10 minutes. Cool 2 minutes before removing cookies from cookie sheet to a rack to cool completely.
 
Place a few cookies on a plate with a cup of milk and leave for Santa!
 
 

MY SPIN: The next time I make these I think I'm going to double the chopped crystallized ginger for a bit more flavor/bite.

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. ***

Later!
Loving Life(time)!
