Recipe Makeovers: Low-Cal Holiday Cookies

We took our favorite holiday cookies recipes and sent them to our Healthy Test Kitchen for a makeover. The challenge: Keep each cookie's yummy taste while lowering fat and calories. The result: sweet success!
Pistachio Biscotti

While biscotti may taste indulgent -- especially after dunked in coffee -- they can be a smarter choice compared to other sweets on the spectrum. Plus, they have a long shelf life, so you can keep a bunch in your cupboard and pull them out when you've got a hankering. Andrew Teter of Savona Restaurant in Gulph Mills, Pennsylvania, pares this treat's calorie count down even further by using Splenda and whole wheat flour, but adds intrigue to the taste with ground pistachios and lemon zest.
