Chocolava Cookies

1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup butter -- or margarine at room temperature
3 large egg whites -- or 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp. vanilla -- (1 to 2)

Preheat oven to 350° F.

In a large bowl or in the bowl of a food processor, combine the flour, sugar, brown sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt, breaking up any lumps of brown sugar. Add the butter and work it in with a fork or pastry cutter (or pulse in the food processor) until the mixture is well blended. If you use a food processor, transfer the mixture to a large bowl.

Add the egg whites (or whole eggs) and vanilla and stir by hand (I use a spatula - that way you can scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl as you mix) until the dough comes together, using your fingers if necessary. The mixture will seem dry at first, and the dough will be sticky because of the low fat content. But keep going, use your hands if you need to, and the dough will come together!

Place a few spoonfuls of icing sugar in a shallow dish. Roll the dough into walnut-sized balls and roll in the sugar to coat. Place 1"-2" apart on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.

Bake for about 12 minutes, until just set around the edges but still soft in the middle. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Makes 22 cookies.
