The recipe requires a little work, but I can guarantee the end result is worth it!

Stellas (Old-Fashioned Cookies) recipe – 152 calories

Ingredients:
3 cups sifted flour
2 egg whites, slightly beaten
1 cup pecans, very finely chopped
1 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cups butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


Preparation:
1. In a small bowl, combine the nuts, cinnamon and sugar, and cinnamon. Set aside.
2. In a medium-sized bowl, sift the flour. Cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly, then stir in the sour cream.
3. Work the dough with your hands or a spoon until it holds together, wrap it in plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate about 6 hours (or overnight).
4. Divide the dough into 4 equal parts (it will be soft and sticky). Work with one part at a time, leaving the rest refrigerated.
5. Sprinkle your work surface with flour, then heavily with sugar. Shape the dough into a ball, rolling out to a round a little larger than 8 inches (the dough should be quite thin).
6. Cut into an 8-inch circle. Refrigerate the scraps.
7. Brush the circle with the beaten egg white and sprinkle with some of the nut mixture.
8. Using a pizza cutter or a knife, cut the circle into 8 equal wedges.
9. Roll each wedge from the wide end, tucking the point underneath. Place 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
10. Repeat with the remaining dough and dough scraps.
11. Brush the tops with egg white and sprinkle with the remaining nut mixture.
12. Bake the cookies in a preheated 400 degrees F oven for about 15-20 minutes (or until light brown).
13. Remove the cookies to wire racks and let cool. Store in a tightly covered container for up to 2 weeks.

  21. Pizza can be a nutritious snack or meal, but the tasty food
    often comes laden with fat and calories. Place it in the oven and heat
    the oven to around 350 degrees and allow the stone to heat for around 15 minutes.
    If you have a double oven, set both up the same
    way.
