Blueberry Lemon Cookies

     Some say necessity is the mother of invention...pssshhh...lazy is the mother of invention in my opinion.  And I don't hate it.  On my Quest for some fast cookie action, I reached for my Quest Nutrition Protein Bars, these babies bake into the perfect cookie in a flash.  AND, have you ever tried to double stack them!?  Genius right!? ... am I the only one who thought of this!?  If  Blueberry and Lemon fell in love and had a baby just in time for Valentines, this is how their dessert table would look.  Welcome to the world Blueberry Lemon Cookies, weighing in at 193 calories each, 6g net carbs and 23g protein.  Congratulations Amore', we have a new way to celebrate!  ;)

Ingredients for 2 Cookies~
1 Blueberry Muffin Quest Protein Bar, sub with favorite flavor
1 Lemon Quest Protein Bar, sub with favorite flavor
2 Tablespoons fat free Cream Cheese (sub with reduced fat or regular)
1 Tablespoon Swerve Granular Erythritol, or to taste
Pink Food Coloring, or color of your choice

     Unwrap both Bars, and cut into equal halves.  Microwave half of Blueberry Bar for 15 seconds, lay heart shaped cookie cutter on Silpat lined cookie sheet and press softened Bar to mold to the heart shape, repeat process with half of Lemon Bar and press softened Bar on top of Blueberry layer, then gently remove the cookie cutter with out marring the shape of the dough.  Repeat with remaining ingredients.  Bake at 350 for 5 minutes.  Meanwhile, stir together Cream Cheese, Erythritol and Food Coloring til fully incorporated, add to baggie, snip corner and decorate as desired on cooled cookie.  Enjoy  :)  PS.  feel free to use your imagination and create these double stacks with all your favorite flavors, the possibilities are limitless...the world just got much bigger... and better!
