I never made cookies but am thinking about it. It seems cookies usually have a whole lot of added fat. I was thinking that maybe this fat could be replaced by the fat in a nut-butter (such as almond butter). That way, along with the fat you would be getting the good things from the nuts. Has anyone tried this?

it's pretty easy to find lower fat cookie recipies, if you just search. i couldn't tell you if straight replacing margerine or whatever with nut butter would work out though....

I don't mean straight replacing. I mean calculating how much nut butter to put in to get the same amount of fat. I know that this works for muffins.

that sounds like a good idea...you'll probably have to play around with the the dough texture though. it might need a little extra liquid. nut butters (especially those natural ones) are much more dense than the kinds of fats cookies are normall made with, because, as you say, they have all that added "goodness". i think it's a cool idea. try it and tell us how it goes!
