Low-Point Lemon Cookies

Yum
All cookies don't have to be overly sweet to be wonderful. These satisfying lemon cookies are made with Bisquick. They have a great lemony "cake" flavor and are a wonderful treat with your morning, noon, or evening coffee. :)

Low-Point Lemon Cookies
Ingredients:
- 1 cup Heart Smart Bisquick baking mix
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2, 1 oz. boxes of sugar free, fat free instant pudding (any flavor)
- 2 Tbs milk
- Powdered sugar, sifted on top after baking (optional)
Mix well and form into little balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and flatten with a fork. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 1/2 to 9 minutes. Sift powdered sugar on top after baking for a little added sweetness. If you'd like a printer-friendly version of this recipe, Click Here.
Total servings = 21 
Serving size = 1
Points per serving = 1.3
*Tip: I made this recipe again using Chocolate Sugar Free Fat Free Instant Pudding but I added 1/2 cup Splenda granulated sugar. If you'd like a sweeter option, just add Splenda. (For those who prefer to use regular table sugar vs. Splenda, using 1/2 cup regular sugar, each enjoyable cookie would be 1.7 pts. instead of 1.3.)
