Recipe Transformation Number One:::Page 107 (In Cooking Simple with Sheila Rae)
1 cup Butter
1 (8 ounce) Cream Cheese
1 1/4 cup Natural Cane Sugar
1 teaspoon Natural Vanilla
3 1/4 cups Oatmeal (not quick oats)
1/2 cup high quality chocolate chips (Ghirardelli is my favorite)
Butter and cream cheese needs to be room temperature. Note: I prefer a mixer, this is very heavy dough. Add remaining ingredients except the chocolate chips. Thoroughly mix. Note: I let it set 30 minutes and stirred again for a minute and added chips. I used a small cookie scoop and then pressed to about 1/2 inch thickness with wet fingers. Bake in a 375 minutes for 12-15 minutes.
Benefits of flourless: I eliminated 3/4 cup of sugar from original recipe and you get rid of white flour that turns to sugar the minute it hits your tongue. While adding the oatmeal which is both digestive and heart health, not bad for a cookie.
