Devil's Delight Cookies
Low Calorie Recipe
Hardly any fat, which helps reduce calories in these Devil's Delight Cookies, but plenty of sweet chocolate flavor and only 58 calories per cookie. Buttermilk helps keep these moist while keeping calories (and fat) down. Cocoa powder adds a nice chocolate flavor.
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup fat-free buttermilk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 egg whites whipped
1-1/2 cup unbleached flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sifted powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
Prepare baking sheets with cooking spray; set aside. In a mixing bowl, combine margarine, buttermilk, vanilla extract, and egg whites. In another mixing bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Mix wet ingredients with dry ingredients just until moistened.
Drop dough by tablespoonfuls, 2-inches apart onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for seven minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
