Ingredients

Cookies

  • 1 pouch Betty Crocker™ oatmeal cookie mix
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup grated carrot
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup fat-free egg product

Frosting

  • 4 oz (half of 8-oz package) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese (Neufchâtel), softened
  • 1 tablespoon light butter with canola oil, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped nuts, if desired

Directions

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, stir cookie ingredients until stiff dough forms.
  • 2
    On ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough by teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart.
  • 3
    Bake 9 to 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 4
    In small bowl, mix all frosting ingredients, except nuts, with spoon until smooth. Spread frosting over cookies. Sprinkle with nuts. Store tightly covered in refrigerator.

  • For best results, make sure cream cheese is at room temperature.
  • For a crispier cookie, substitute 1/4 cup light butter with canola oil for 1/4 cup of the applesauce.
