Vanilla Frosted Fudge Cookies Recipe
Just plain healthy recipe...
These vanilla frosted fudge cookies are sweet and tasty, with a wonderful vanilla flavor and light frosting. These contain little fat.
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup sugar
1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
4 egg whites, unbeaten
2 cups powdered sugar
2 to 3 tablespoons skim milk
Additional unsweetened cocoa powder
Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
Spray large non-stick cookie sheet with vegetable oil spray. Sift flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt, set aside.
Mix together oil, sugar, 1-teaspoon of the vanilla and egg whites until well combined. Stir in flour mixture. Chill one hour. Using a 1/2-tablespoon measure, scoop the dough on to the cookie sheet, leaving two inches between cookies as they will spread. Bake eight to ten minutes or until cookies are puffed and cooked through. Do not overcook! Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack and cool completely.
Mix together the powdered sugar, skim milk and remaining 1/2-teaspoon of vanilla until pasty. Add a little more skim milk if necessary. Spread a small amount of vanilla frosting on each cookie. Put the cookies back on the rack, dust lightly with cocoa powder and allow frosting to dry.
