Cookie Dough For Pregnant Women

in Food,Making Eats

So this morning as I ate a yogurt for my second breakfast I was reminded of a little snack I would make for myself when I was pregnant. (I’m not pregnant now, but I still require a second breakfast.) For me the hardest food restriction was no cookie dough. I think I only disobeyed one or two times, but it was tough!About halfway through my pregnancy I came across a cookie recipe in my cookbook that calls for yogurt instead of eggs. Brilliant! From that point to the end of my pregnancy, whenever I had a hankering for some cookie dough, I whipped up that recipe and picked at the dough to my little heart’s content.

So here it is for all you pregnant women.

Chocolate Chip Yogurt Cookies

1/2 c. sugar*
1/2 c. packed brown sugar*
1/4 c. butter*
1/4 c. shortening*
1/2 c. nonfat yogurt (any flavor)
1 1/2 t. vanilla
1 3/4 c. flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 c. chocolate chips

Bake 8-12 minutes at 375.

(*I use less sugar and butter than my recipes call for. For this recipe I use 1/3 c. sugar and 1/3 c. brown sugar instead of 1/2 c. of each and 1/4 c. butter and no shortening. Read more about my baking secrets here)
