In the kitchen I'm not very creative...I can follow a recipe but it never looks pretty. I can usually score a 10 on taste but the presentation would be -2, at least! Now, my sister Teri her presentation of things is AMAZING (yes, she made that cake)!!! I actually made something today that is pretty and calorie friendly. I probably should change my title because I'm not sure how yummy it really is......I have to wait till dessert time :)

Here is the'll be so proud I thought of this in my head and then pulled a couple of different, the story gets better!!!!!

Cookie Crust

2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp canola oil
½ brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp table salt
1 lg egg white
¾ flour
¼ tsp baking soda
3 oz chocolate chips (I use mini chips)

Preheat oven to 375. Cream butter, oil and sugar. Add vanilla, salt and egg white, mix thoroughly. Mix together flour and baking soda. Add chocolate chips and stir. Bake in a spring form pan and cook for 6 minutes (just watch it I might of cooked a minute or 2 longer).

Side Note: this recipe makes 24 cookies at a point a piece or I double the recipe and cook in a 13x9 pan and get 48 little bites.

Cream Cheese Frosting

1 (8oz) pkg fat free cream cheese
1 (8oz) tub Cool Whip Free Whipped Topping
½ C Splenda
½ tsp vanilla

Beat cream cheese until soft. Add Cool Whip, Splenda and vanilla. Mix until smooth. Take 1/3 cup and spread over crust. It makes way more than 1/3 cup but hey you have some left over to dip fruit in.

I used 1 cup of strawberries and 1 large kiwi for topping. I also melted 1 tbsp of chocolate chips and spread over top.

If you cut into 6 slices it's 7 points or 8 slices 6 points on weight watchers. It's a little higher than I should be eating but it could be a whole lot worse :)

success! it was delicious :) i used strawberries and banana instead of strawberries and kiwi, sugar instead of splenda and regular cream cheese and whip cream so it was a little different then yours but very good!
