Healthy Cookies

I found these cookies on (a disclaimer for I have not tried these but they do look good).
They look good (as good as low fat gets, I like butter). I thought some fat free recipes would be just the thing for starting off the new year. The only question is now, where do you find prune butter?

(Disclaimer: Cookies in photograph may contain un-fat-free ingredients!)


1 1/2 c. flour

1/2 c. sugar

1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 c. Karo (light or dark)

3 egg whites

Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray. In large bowl,combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Stir in corn syrup and egg white until blended (doughwill be thick and slightly sticky). Drop by roundedteaspoon onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake at 350degrees for 7 to 9 minutes or just until set (cookieswill be soft when pressed). Do not overbake. Cool on rack.

Chocolate Hannukah Stars Recipe

1/4 c. Prune butter

1 c Sugar

2 Eggs worth of egg substitute

2 c. All-purpose flour

1/2 c. Cocoa

1 t. Baking powder

1/2 t. Baking soda

1/2 t. Salt

Confectioner's sugar

In a large bowl, beat prune butter, sugar and egg substitute on medium speed of electric mixer. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Cover; refrigerate dough until firm enough to handle. Preheat oven to 350 F. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/8-inch thickness; cut with star-shapped cookie cutter (can use menorah, dreidel and others). Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 5 to 7 minute, or until no imprint remains when touched lightly in the center. Cool 1 minute; remove cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
