Here is an interesting one. Take the blueberry cookie recipe and change the following:
Use a food processor or blender and blend everything together (yes, the blueberries too)
increase flour by 1/2 - 3/4 cup
add 1/2 to 1 tsp of anise flavoring
increase sugar by 1/4 cup
Bake at the same temp. Drop by small tsp onto cookie sheet. When the cookies are done, they resemble speckled eggs. They taste like black jelly beans - or licorice if you will. My husband (who normally hates my cooking) said that they were unique and that he liked them. (Who knows? Maybe it is an O thing! I was worried about my 2 year old receiving enough candy in his Easter Basket. Right now, he has cookies, some allergy free lollipops, and some sesame candy bars (just newly found in the grocery store).
In case you are wondering, I follow the btd diet as closely as possible EXCEPT for desserts. I think that if you are eating correctly 99% of the time, a small dessert will not hurt you.
I also have to admit, that if I were fighting cancer or some other serious illness, I wouldn't cheat at all. Good eats, everyone!
