Low fat margarine? I've never heard of it!
I have heard that you can replace half the fat with applesauce though. I could definitely use some sweetener to replace some of the sugar. (or just cut the sugar.) I could use fewer chocolate chips. I believe the winning cookie had nuts in it. I could replace some of the chocolate chips with nuts for a healthier cookie.
"you can eat a couple yourself then give the rest away to an elderly or ill neighbour."
- Not that my elderly or ill neighbor wants 2 dozen cookies either! (Plus, I do have 3 kids who can help me eat them.)
"you only bake a couple at a time when you are cooking something else " - I like that idea!
Of course, I wouldn't bake only a couple at a time. I'd probably bake a dozen - enough for my husband, kids, and neighbor as well as myself.
However, I do like the idea of not cooking the whole batch at once. Cookies are so much better fresh!
