Fruit Spice Cookies
Makes 48 cookies @ 1 pt per cookie
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup reduced-calorie margarine
2 tablespoons molasses
1/4 cup fat-free egg substitute
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice, divided
1 cup dried mixed fruit, chopped, or dried fruit bits
1 teaspoon powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat two sheet pans with cooking spray or line them with parchment paper.
Using an electric mixer, cream together sugar, margarine and molasses; beat in egg substitute. Blend in flour, one teaspoon of the pumpkin pie spice and dried fruit.
Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto sheet pans, spacing them two inches apart. Bake until they start to become firm, about eight minutes. Cool for one minute before removing from pans and then allow to cool completely.
Stir together remaining one teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice and powdered sugar and then sprinkle over cookies.
