Makeover Out-on-the

To reduce the fat, they replaced the shortening with about half the amount of butter, substituted two egg whites for one of the eggs and used only half the peanut butter, substituting the reduced-fat variety. They also cut the amount of chocolate chips in half and switched to miniature chips so they would be better distributed in the dough. They cut back on the amount of sugar in the original recipe, too. And finally, they added a bit of cornstarch to keep the cookie's melt-in-your-mouth texture.

In a mixing bowl, beat butter and sugars until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Add the next five ingredients; mix well. Combine dry ingredients; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Stir in chips....
