Yes, that is a mouth full of a cookie title isn’t it ? !! Not too mention that it sounds boring and come on already, how good can those kind of cookies actually be? OK, so they are not going to taste exactly like the kind we love….you know, rich tasting and the full of butter kind. But they are going to taste good….a touch of honey, a bit of cinnamon. Nice. Sometimes we might want to do something nice for someone that might or might not have to be watching their cholesterol and sodium intake so….here we go, making a cookie that is acceptable within those particular guidelines and you know what?? They’re good! Really, they are. The original recipe has about 1/2 tea salt added of which we left out. You can’t even tell. And we used a really great product that is sodium free AND also happens to be gluten free for all you gluten free bakers out there. It is by Hain Pure Foods and it is called – Featherweight Baking Powder – http://www.hainpurefoods.com/products/product.php?prod_id=1842-  ……. So give these a try, they are a one bowl, no mixer kind of cookie. Easy. And lets face it, anything with chocolate in it is not going to be bad. It’s chocolate. Come on……

  1. Now put the dough in the fridge for awhile, it firms up and is easier to roll into balls. Drop the cookies onto the prepared cookie sheets. Flatten with the back of a spoon dipped in water. Bake for 8 to 9 minutes in the preheated oven.
