These sweet, delicious and mere 42 calorie cookies were made this fall because I wanted something sweet that wasn't going to derail my diet. Instantly, this became my go-to cookie recipe of the season! My husband, roommates and collages gobbled them up as soon as they were finished! Each bite has the right amount of pumpkin flavor, chewy moistness and natural sweetness. What makes these cookies so low fat is the use of applesauce in place of traditional butter and oil. Indulge this new year in a cookie that won't break your resolutions!
