Do you like the smell and taste of fresh baked cookies all the time but can't bake as often as you would like? Does your diet dictate to you that cookies shouldn't be the largest part of your daily food pyramid? Try this:
Go to the freezer section of your favorite grocery store and find the frozen cookie dough. (This is an especially good thing to do after the Holidays if you want to stock up on discounted Holiday cookie dough) Take a package or 2 home and freeze one. Open one pack and cut only 2 cookies or chunks of dough into quarters. Roll each quarter into a ball. You then bake these but watch them because you won't be baking them as directed (as directed was meant for the original sized cookie before it was quartered).
I like to use my little table top cookie oven for this because the baking sheet is very small and easily washed. You will trick your stomach into thinking that you are getting more cookie than what it really is getting!
The smell of fresh baked cookies drifting through the house with only 2 cookies! What a great way to watch your calorie intake when the Holidays make that so hard to do! Put the coffee on!!
