I adapted this recipe from Cook's Illustrated book of healthy recipes. For 100 calories a cookie, I think they're great: light and cake-y, with a strong vanilla taste. I'd recommend using quality chocolate chips (I used hershey's mini dark chocolate kisses, but ghirardelli would be even better), to add a little decadence. Enjoy! —athaler11

These cookies are so yummy!

I modified the recipe a bit by using brown butter and mini chocolate chips, they turned out so good! I will definitely make these again.
