Low Fat Recipe

Popular black and white cookies go low fat! Applesauce replaces much of the fat. Frost cookies with half white and half black - actually chocolate - frosting.

Black and White Cookies

Ingredients

1-1/2 cup all purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup applesauce
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2  large egg whites
Frosting:
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar , divided
3 tablespoons 2 percent milk, divided
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

Recipe Directions

Preheat oven to 375-degrees.

To prepare cookies, lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt, stirring with a whisk.

Place applesauce in a fine sieve; let stand 15 minutes.

Combine drained applesauce, granulated sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed two minutes or until well blended. Beat in vanilla and egg whites. Add flour mixture; beat at low speed until blended.

Drop dough by tablespoonfuls 2-inches apart onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake at 375-degrees for ten minutes or until set (not browned). Cool on pans two minutes or until firm. Remove from pans; cool completely on wire racks.

To prepare frosting, combine 3 /4 cup powdered sugar, 1-tablespoon milk and almond extract in a bowl, stirring well with a whisk until smooth. Working with one cookie at a time, hold cookie over bowl and spread about 1-teaspoon white frosting over half of cookie (scrape excess frosting from edges). Let stand ten minutes or until frosting is set.

Combine 3/4 cup powdered sugar and cocoa in a bowl. Gradually add 2-tablespoons milk, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Working with one cookie at a time, hold cookie over bowl and spread about 1-teaspoon chocolate frosting over other half of cookie (scrape excess frosting from edges). Let stand ten minutes or until frosting is set.
