why difference does butter make in cookies
Why difference does butter make in cookies?
  • Cookies made with butter spread during baking, which means they're thinner. Butter makes things tender and carries flavors. Less butter means less spread and a little more fudgy rather than crispy. Small amounts of yogurt, applesauce, or egg whites can help give lower-fat cookies the texture of high-fat ones.
what does sugar do in baked goods
What does sugar do in baked goods?
  • Acts as a tenderizer preventing gluten formation which would make the baked good tough, caramelizes which enriches flavors
  • Ground flaxseed can be a fat substitute by using 3T for each 1T of fat.
      • For example, if recipe calls for 1 cup of butter, substitute ½ cup with ground flaxseeds. ½ cup is 8 T fat which is 24T or 1 ½ cups ground flaxseed. Product will brown more quickly. Good Luck!

  • Vinegar
  • Horseradish

  • Red pepper flakes
  • Sprinkle of parmesan cheese (stronger flavor than most cheeses)

  • Brushetta: Tomatoes, garlic and basil atop bread. Get whole wheat or multigrain baguettes from the bakery. 45 calories; 2 g fat per piece
  • Smoked salmon mousse: In a food processor, mix 6 ounces smoked salmon with light cream cheese, some dill, lemon zest and juice, and a handful of capers. Mix until creamy, then spread on sliced baguettes and top with a thin slice of English cucumber. 75 calories; 3 g fat
  • Salsa: Jarred or homemade, spicy or mild, this is a no-fail appetizer. Serve it with baked or whole-grain chips, vegetables or pita chips. 50-75 calories a cup
  • Shrimp cocktail: Shrimp is lean, and each one has 1 gram of filling protein. Protein takes longer to digest and keeps you fuller, longer. 10 calories, no fat per shrimp with a teaspoon of cocktail sauce.

Popcorn: Popcorn is a whole grain, and 1 cup of air-popped popcorn has just 30 calories. Spritz with nonstick spray, then sprinkle on oregano, black pepper and parmesan cheese.Fruit and cheese: Skip the crackers and serve cheese with fruit instead. Cheese is full of calcium and protein, and the fruit helps bring out its flavor. 115 calories, 7 g fat in one ounce of cheddar cheese. Swap low-fat for full-fat cheese. Deviled eggs: Halve the mayo in the recipe to save calories. These are another filling, healthy treat. Instead of your typical filling, try hummus, salsa, or even that smoked salmon mousse. 65 calories, 3 g fat per half of an egg.
