Ingredients

    3 tablespoons canola oil
    1 egg
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1/4 cup baking cocoa
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    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 24 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 - 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 decided to not do the icing and and instead add some mint to the cookie batter. They were delicious! Still a little soft in the center, just as I like them! - 11/13/08

  • The kids loved them, I found them a bit too sweet. I got only 16 SMALL cookies, which made 8 servings, and I had alot of icing left over. You really only need half the icing. Thanks for sharing. - 12/22/07

  • I definitely didn't get 36 little balls out of this recipe! I made them about tablespoon size, and had a bout 16 - so 8 pies. The frosting was much more goopy than I expected.

    But! The crowd LOVED them!! I only snagged one, they were gobbled down very quickly! - 12/15/07

  • I am sorry to bust your bubble folks, but this recipe is not as low fat as the nutritional chart says. The entire recipe has 70 fat grams. I don't know who would sit and eat a dozen and 1/2 at time. As for the rest I doubt there is 19 proteins and the salt also seems way off. Still look good though. - 12/12/07

  • I think all the recipes are off in their nutritional ratings, especially sodium. There's something wrong, here. The recipes I've seen have extraordinary amounts of sodium - 12/12/07

  • My mom used to make these for me when I was a toddler minus the mint. I'm so excited there's a lower fat version of them! - 12/11/07

  • OK I made them, but I was disappointed in the size/quantity. It's supposed to make 18, but I was scraping the bowl just to make 16, and at that they were about 2" across. Not the size whoopie pies I'm used to! They were a little crispy on the outside, and the filling wasn't fluffy. But still OK. - 12/11/07

  • My comments are the same. I think the nutritional info is WAAAAY off on this one, from carbs to fats to proteins. Sounds tasty, though!! - 12/11/07

  • Recipe sounds good and I may try it, but I'm a bit confused on the nutritional info. Over 19 grams of protein from 1 egg and a couple of ounces of skim milk? And only 5 grams of carbs from 1/2 cup of reg sugar and over a cup of confectioners sugar? What am I missing? - 12/11/07
