Weight Watchers Mini Double Choc Chip and Orange Cookies and Giveaway Winner!

First things first, the winner of my giveaway (picked by using random.org) to win a copy of James Ramsden's 'Small Adventures in Cooking' was this comment:

YAY a giveaway!!!

Hmm considering I have never really tried to impress anyone with my cooking ... ( or maybe I have) ... I guess it'll have to be my chicken/salmon fried rice (its always on demand and it is so easy and fast to make! Oh and EXTREMELY TASTY :-P)

And for today's recipe:
Recipe Source - Weight Watchers Your Week Magazine

5 Pro Points per 4 cookies
Makes 24 cookies

100g low fat spread
10g artificial sweetener
1 egg, beaten
Grated zest of 1 orange
100g plain flour
20g cocoa powder
40g milk chocolate chips (I used white chocolate chips)

1 - Preheat the oven to gas mark 4/180C/fan oven 160C
2 - Beat the low fat spread and the sweetener together until combined (about 2 minutes)
3 - Beat in the egg, a little at a time, and then beat in the orange zest
4 - Combine the flour and cocoa powder into the low fat spread and beat in until combined, then stir in half of the chocolate chips. Cover with cling film and chill in the fridge for 1 hour or until starting to firm up
5 - Line two large baking trays with grease proof paper and set aside
6 - Scoop 24 teaspoons of the cookie mix onto the baking trays, spacing the spoonfuls well apart, then pat into flat rounds with your fingertips - the dough will be sticky, so be gentle as you pat them into shape
7 - Press in the remaining chocolate chips and bake for 15 minutes until crisp. 
8 - Leave to cool and store in an airtight container. They will keep for 2 - 3 days.

i really dont like cookie, i cant understand why they are soft,
i think much prefer biscuits, note that up until few months ago i didnt know that there was a difference, in naija cookies are hard lol.
PS did u try this recipe yet? how does using artificial sweeteners impact the taste? those things taste nasty
