Easy cookie swap

First For Women - - Feel-Good File -

“When I’m look­ing to sat­isfy my sweet tooth, noth­ing hits the spot like choco­late chip cook­ies,” muses Ni­cole Aber, FIRST as­so­ciate food ed­i­tor. “And I re­cently made a ver­sion that’s lower in fat and calo­ries but just as de­li­cious. My se­cret? I re­place half the but­ter in my go-to cookie recipe with an equal amount of shred­ded zuc­chini. The veg­gie adds mois­ture and its mild fla­vor won’t over­power the rich, choco­laty taste. To en­sure the best re­sults, I use a dish towel to squeeze ex­cess water out of the shred­ded zuc­chini be­fore adding it to the dough, then bake as usual. Th­ese treats al­ways earn rave re­views!”
