Chocolate Gingersnap Cookies

Cooking Light
A hint of chocolate enhances these crisp, spicy cookies. It's best to bake each tray of cookies separately; while one tray bakes, keep the other tray in the refrigerator to prevent the dough from becoming too soft.
2 dozen (serving size: 2 cookies)

1/2 cup all-purpose flour (about 2 1/4 ounces)
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa, sifted
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter, softened
2 tablespoons molasses
1 tablespoon egg substitute
Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 350°.

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 4 ingredients (through salt), stirring with a whisk. Place sugar and butter in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed 2 minutes or until creamy. Add molasses; beat until smooth. Add egg substitute; beat until well combined. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture, stirring until well combined.

Shape dough into 24 balls, about 1 1/2 teaspoons each. Place 2 inches apart on 2 baking sheets coated with cooking spray; flatten balls to 1/2-inch thickness with bottom of a glass.
