Source: Canyon Ranch Health Resorts
Yield: 48 cookies

1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup nonfat yogurt
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 ounces miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a Teflon-coated cookie sheet lightly with canola oil.

In a large bowl, cream butter with sugar and brown sugar. Add egg and mix well. Add yogurt, applesauce, and vanilla. Mix well and set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to creamed mixture and mix well. Add chocolate chips. Refrigerate dough until well chilled.

Measure 1-1/2 tablespoons dough per cookie and place 2" apart onto cookie sheet. Bake in oven for 8 to 10 minutes until cookies begin to turn golden on the edges. Let cool before removing from pan.

For crispier cookies, freeze dough for at least two hours before baking.
