Chewy Mocha Brownie Cookies

I find it hard to believe this are from the glycemic index cookbook, but they are!

Here's the recipe.  The fact that it makes only 2 dozen cookies undoubtedly helps keep the numbers down!

1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup stick margarine
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp instant coffee granules
1/4 cup reduced fat buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbs powdered sugar

1.  Combine flour and baking soda in small bowl.  Metl margarine in medium saucepan; remove from heat.  Stir in granulated sugar, cocoa, brown sugar and coffee granules.  Add buttermilk and vanilla; mix well.  Stir in flour mixture until just combined.  Transfer doubh to small bowl.  Cover and refirgerate 1 hour. (Dough will be stiff)

2.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Lightly spray cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray or line with parchment paper.  Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto prepared cookies sheets.

3.  Bake 10 to 11 mintues or until edges are firm.  Cool on cookie sheets 2 minutes.  Remove to wire rack; cool completely.

4.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar just before serving.

Makes 2 dozen cookies (2 cookies per serving)

Family opinion:

Everyone liked them -- not as much as high octane chocolate chip cookies, but they were good.  Nice and chewy and REALLY chocolatey flavored.  And that was the key -- these were so rich tasting, two was enough to satisfy.  So perhaps that's the secret!

Okay -- I promise TOMORROW, I'll review the pancake recipe!
