A question about a recipe: Cream Cheese Cookies

D186e769 23d8 42e5 95e9 9c4d82523e0e  110920 35 1

I have a question about the recipe "Cream Cheese Cookies" from merrill. Has anyone tried the low-fat cream cheese Neuchatel (sp?) I've been told to stay on a low-fat, low-carb diet and the low-fat dairy products seem to be better for my diet.

I have had these cookies many times they are wonderful, have never used low fat cream cheese full fat cream cheese has 9 grams per serving and low fat 6 grams so I don't think it will impact the outcome of the cookies significantly. The recipe also calls for 8 ounces of butter which has more fat per serving than full fat cream cheese (11 grams) If you are using the low fat cream cheese and the butter then I don't anticipate any problems with the outcome. Maybe someone with a background in nutrition can weigh in on this also.

Your answer makes a lot of sense. I'm not willing to try a low-fate substitute for butter as it always gives the best results with baking.
