Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1/2 cup sugar
    3 tablespoons canola oil
    1 egg
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1/4 cup baking cocoa
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    4 tablespoons fat-free milk, divided
    2 tablespoons butter, softened
    1-1/3 cups confectioners' sugar
    1/8 teaspoon mint extract
    4 drops green food coloring, optional

Directions

In a bowl, beat sugar and oil until crumbly. Add egg; beat for 1 minute. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Gradually beat into sugar mixture. Add 2 tablespoons milk; mix well. With lightly floured hands, roll dough into 36 balls.

Place 2 in. apart on baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Flatten slightly with a glass coated with cooking spray. Bake at 425° for 5-6 minutes or until edges are set and tops are cracked. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool.

In a mixing bowl, combine butter and confectioners' sugar until crumbly. Beat in extract, food coloring if desired and remaining milk. Spread on the bottom of half of the cookies; top with remaining cookies.

Yield:1-1/2 dozen.


For a change of pace, try using orange extract instead of the mint, and one drop each of red and yellow food coloring for the four drops of green.

    I agree with previous comments. Counts seemed high so I ran the ingredients through the Recipe Calculator. Don't know where the original counts came from, but they are way off. A few differences: Cholesterol-.5 not 48.8; Sodium -78.6 not 1151; Protein-1.2 instead of 19.4)

  • These had a great flavor and texture, but they were very messy to make. The dough was very thin and would not roll into balls for me, but I made them anyway as frosted cookies instead of sandwiches. - 12/29/07

  • Isn't this from a Light & Tasty magazine? I recognize the picture, since I was going to make these for Christmas Day. They sound so good (even if the nutritional info needs correcting)! - 12/13/07

  • I think there are 18 servings...not 1. Can that be corrected once submitted? - 12/13/07

  • I was querying the same, a typo for sure - 12/12/07

  • Is the nutritional information on these correct? I don't see where they get 19 grams of protein from (that's as much as is in a protein bar), and over 1000 mg salt? I will try the receipe, but leave out the salt, substitute no salt butter or use smart balance spread. I'll let you know how they do - 12/12/07
