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!
Whole Wheat Oatmeal Cookies with Dried Black Mission Figs

Chewy, sweet, and satisfying, these cookies from Chef John Currence conjure up the oatmeal raisin treats of your childhood, but swap the raisins for a very adult ingredient -- black mission figs. Subtle hints of almond and honey say "sophisticated," while the guilt is diminished by the pared-down fat and calorie content. An instant favorite.
