Christmas Cookies Everywhere and Not a Bite to Eat

Ah, the tradgedy of a dieter at holiday time. There are company potlucks and gift exchanges and caroling parties and cookie exchanges and it seems like every single one of them has cookies. But homemade cookies are hard to track! You don't know what ingredients they used or what a portion size is, and e-tools just gives you a generic "cookie" number, which doesn't help either. You could just not eat the cookies, but thats no fun, and people ask, and sometimes get belligerent if you don't take a plate of their cookies back to the table with you. 

To avoid this insane holiday stressor, and to save yourself from what will probably be another chocolate chip cookie binge, you can always bring your own. That's right, YOU bring the cookies! You know whats in them, what a portion looks like and exactly how many points each one of those babies is. Stress- solved. "But where can I find health conscious cookie recipes? Isn't that like an urban myth or something?" you say?

Nope
