Chocolate Chanukkah Cookies

Recipe by Wen Zientek

This recipe comes from the mother of a friend of mine that makes these cookies every year. They are lower in fat than more traditional cookies are always quickly gobbled up. I like using Star of David cutters, but gelt or dreidel cutters also work great. These cookies can also be frosted with royal icing or glazed.

1/4 cup prune butter
1 cup sugar
egg substitute equivalent to 2 eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon pure almond extract
2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
powdered sugar

Beat the prune butter, sugar, and egg substitute in a large bowl until light and fluffy. In a small bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and beat until well blended. Cover tightly and chill for 2 hours. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll 1/8 inch thick. Cut with star cookie cutters and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 4 to 6 minutes, or until firm. Cookies should not brown. Cool for one minute on the sheets and then carefully place on wire racks. Lightly dust the cookies with powdered sugar. Store in an airtight container.
