PB No Bake Cookies

I think I like these better withOUT the cocoa! But they are still “hi-point”. 😦

PB No Bake Cookies
1/3 c. skim milk
1/2 c. honey
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
pinch salt
1/2 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. Splenda

Combine the milk, brown sugar, and honey in a large pot over medium-high heat; bring to a rapid boil for 90 seconds. Stir the salt and peanut butter into the mixture and remove immediately from the heat. Add Splenda and oatmeal quickly and mix to combine. Make sure the texture is thick with a little bit of sauce, but not too much sauce. If needed add extra oatmeal. Drop rounded spoonfuls of the dough 2 inches apart onto aluminum foil or waxed paper; allow to sit 1 to 2 hours before serving.

Truck Stop Gravy & Biscuits

I thought this was good! I used 4 oz of light cream cheese instead of the 8 oz of ff cream cheese. It gave it a slightly sweet flavor so if you don’t think that would appeal to you maybe use 2 oz of light cream cheese and a little more flour.

Truck Stop Biscuits and Gravy
1 (7.5-ounce) Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits
8 ounces ground beef
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground sage
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
2 1/2 cups skim milk
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 (8 oz.) pkg. fat-free cream cheese

Bake biscuits according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray, brown meat. Add spices. In a covered jar, combine skim milk and flour. Shake well. Pour milk mixture into skillet with browned meat. Add cream cheese. Continue cooking, stirring often, until mixture thickens and cream cheese melts. Spoon gravy over biscuits.
Serves 5.

Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake Bars

These were good, but not as sweet as needed. Honestly, I’m not sure I used a whole cup of Splenda though…but I really think a 1/4 cup of brown sugar is what is needed here, plus the Splenda. So, i’m going to post the recipe as I think it should be.

Pumpkin Spice cheesecake Bars
3 cinnamon graham cracker (whole sheets-4 crackers per sheet)
8 oz light cream cheese
2/3 C Splenda
1/4 c. packed brown sugar
2 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup canned pumpkin

Preheat oven to 350^. Lay graham crackers in bottom of 9×9 pan. Combine remaining ingredients with mixer. Pour over graham crackers and bake about 30 minutes, until set.
