Lowfat Pumpkin Cookies
3/4 C Pumpkin Pie Filling -- canned
3/4 C Brown Sugar -- Packed
1/2 C Nonfat plain yogurt
2 tablespoons nonfat plain yogurt
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1 C Raisins
2 C Cake Flour
1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Tsp Ground Ginger
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Ground Allspice
1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
Oven: 350 F
Line 2 baking sheets with parchment or coat with non-stick spray In
a large bowl, whisk together pumpkin, sugar, yogurt, and vanilla.
Stir in raisins. In a medium bowl, stir together remaining (dry)
ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix just until
Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets,
spacing cookies about 4 cm apart. Bake for 15 min, until they seem
firm. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.
Makes 3 dozen cookies.
Storage: no-fat-added cookies do not store well. They become stale
quickly and stick together if stacked. As soon as they are cool,
wrap the cookies, layers separated by waxed paper, and freeze. To
serve, simply let them thaw to room temperature.
Notes: Because there is no fat to help them spread, the cookies will
be kind of lumpy. These look a little funny (and don't really brown
because there is no fat) but they taste very good.
