Cocoa Fudge Cookies (2 points)

Recommended Posts

From the new Cooking Light magazine

 

"You can mix these incredibly easy, fudgy cookies right in the saucepan. When freshly baked, these thin cookies have crisp edges and chewy centers. You can make them with either Dutch process or natural unsweetened cocoa powder; we opted for the latter."

 

1 c all purpose flour

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/8 tsp salt

5 TBSPS butter

7 TBSPS unsweetened cocoa

2/3 c granulated sugar

1/3 c packed brown sugar

1/3 c plain low-fat yogurt

1 tsp vanilla extract

Cooking spray

 

1. Preheat oven to 350

 

2. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cup, level with knife. Combine flour, soda and salt. Set aside. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat; stir in cocoa powder and sugars (mixture will resemble coarse sand). Add yogurt and vanilla, stirring to combine. Add flour mixture; stirring until moist. Drop by level tablespoons 2" apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray.

3. Bake at 350 8-10 minutes or until almost set. Cool on pans 2-3 minutes or until firm. Remove cookies from pans and cool on wire racks.

The Splenda website suggests reducing the liquid by 1/2 tbsp but I don't know if that should come out of the butter or the yogurt. For more info on cooking with splenda go to www.splenda.com.

 

And let me know how these come out. I probably won't make them for a while because cookies are such a bad trigger for me. :( But I have had good success using Splenda up to this point in cookies and muffins. To me its wortha try to be about to have 2 cookies for the price/points of 1.

Hi wave.gif

 

Has anyone tried these yet with Tanya's change to Splenda? I have had great luck [so far] just substituting with no change to liquids...wondered if that would work with this cookie.

 

Also wonder if using "whipped butter" would work? Would be great to halve the points for the butter :D

 

I definitely would love to have 2 cookies for the "proce points" of one! crazy.gif

I made these the same day the magazine came in the mail!!

 

They are very good... They taste like a very chocolaty fudgy brownie...

 

I have been using whole wheat pastry flour in my baking instead of all purpose white & that's what I did in these, too
