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!
Soft Molasses Cookies

Looking for a lighter take on the traditional sugar cookie? Try this yummy bite from Patricia Williams, executive chef at New York City's Nios Restaurant. Williams is a former ballerina, and finds cooking with a healthy mind-set engrained after her years of dancing onstage. She's able to subtract the amount of refined sugar in her recipe by adding molasses -- a sweet syrup that retains some of the nutrients lost in the sugar refining process.
