Christmas and cookies go together like Halloween and chocolate 😉 Who doesn’t love just spending the day baking Christmas cookies.. especially if you get the kids involved! But… most cookies are going to cost you in points, especially our new “smart points”, so I set out to make a smart points friendly Christmas cookie.. and according to my daughter I hit the jackpot!! 🙂 She came home from school just as these chocolate fudge crinkle cookies came out of the oven and I think she ate 8 😉 needless to say the verdict was in.. they were delicious… and… tada.. only 1 smart point each 🙂 Here’s a suggestion with left over cookies..freeze them and then use them as crumble topping for your yogurts! 🙂

  1. Just started back on WW and was wanting a touch of something sweet – these did the trick! Thanks!

      Sweet!! Glad you enjoyed them, and good luck on your WW journey! 🙂

  2. Just stumble on this site, looks like you have a lot of good ideas! I was wondering, with these cookies, are these about a tablespoon size when I drop them into the powdered sugar?

    I notice is says best if served same day. If I make the dough a head of time can I store it in the fridge a for a day or so before baking?

      I think the dough in the fridge a day before will be fine, once cookies are baked they are best served same day

  5. These are pretty dry. They’d probably be better with some type of icing.

      Mine were not too dry, but yes icing sounds yummy 🙂
