I thought it would be fun to find an online calorie calculator to calculate how many calories and fat grams are in one of my sugar cookies. Here are the results: (based on the Recipe Calculator at SparkRecipes.com.)

For one 3.5" iced cookie, under 200 calories and 4.3 grams of fat isn't too shabby! If I use a reduced-fat version of one of my ingredients, it brings the fat grams total to 3.9 and calories to 186.

Now, I'm not saying my cookies are healthy, but for someone who may be watching their waistline, one cookie isn't a bad option for a tasty dessert. ...or am I starting to sound like the devil's advocate?
