   Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto a cookie sheet
   that has been sprayed with cooking spray or lined with
   aluminum foil.  Bake at 375 for 12-14 minutes or until
   lightly browned.  Remove from oven and let sit for 1
   minute. Remove cookies to wire rack and cool to room
   temperature. Author’s Note: These cookies, which
   provide 2 grams of dietary fiber each, aren't terribly
   sweet. We like them this way, but if you prefer them
   sweeter, you can add 1 tbsp Weight Watchers dry
   substitute when adding the other sugars and this will
   not change the nutritive values. Nutritive Value per
