I have no idea where I got this recipe. I wish I could claim it. I gave up chocolate for lent, needed something sweet (I am sure you can relate:) ) and thought I would try this recipe.
They are wonderful!
1/4 c. butter
1/3 c. low-fat cream cheese
brown sugar, packed
2 egg yolks
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. all-purpose flour
whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
5 Tbsp. cinnamon sugar
Preheat ovent to 350 degrees. Lightly coat a baking sheet with canola oil (I just used parchment paper instead).
In a large mixing bowl, mix butter, cream cheese and brown sugar on low speed with an electric mixer. Add egg yolk and vanilla and mix on low until just combined.
In a medium bowl, combine all remaining ingredients except the cinnamon sugar. Add to butter mixture and mix by hand until combined.
Portion heaping teasponnsfuls (or use a 3/4 oz. scoop) onto baking sheet about 1 1/2 inches apart. Sprinkle lightly with cinnamon sugar.
Bake for 7 minutes, then lightly flatten cookies with finger, rotate baking sheet and bake an additional 3 minutes.
Makes about 30 cookies. Each cookie contains approximately:
1 g. protein
3 g. fat
20 mg. cholesterol
Note: the only problem I had was that I should have doubled it 😛

I love Snickerdoodles. Such a simple cookie, and is great when you have a sweet tooth. Jaime, I don’t know about giving up the chocolate.
I gave up the lint and went for the chocolate, it tasted better.
