Low-Sugar-Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

Low-Sugar-Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies
So we're keeping up with our low sugar theme by trying out these soft, drop type chocolate cookies. They call for 1/4 a cup of sugar or a 1/2 cup of sugar substitute. I did have some Splenda on hand but chose to go with the 1/4 cup of granulated sugar which if you think really isn't that much! They turned out great and yielded about 15 cookies. Here's the recipe and the link

1/2cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
1/4cup sugar
granulated sugar substitute to equal 1/2 cup sugar
1large egg
1teaspoon vanilla extract
1cup all-purpose flour
3tablespoons Hershey's Cocoa or Hershey's European style Cocoa
1/2teaspoon baking soda
1/8teaspoon salt
2tablespoons skim milk
1/3cup Hershey's mini chips Semi-Sweet Chocolate
  1. Heat oven to 375°. In medium bowl, beat butter, sugar and sugar substitute until well blended. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; add alternately with milk to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in small chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 7 to 9 minutes or just until set. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
