  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1/2 cup fruit puree fat replacement
  • 1/4 cup canola oil

Cooking Instruction

Step 1

Whisk flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves and ginger in a medium bowl. Whisk egg white, 1 cup sugar, fruit puree, oil and molasses in a large mixing bowl. Add the dry ingredients and stir gently until combined. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours or overnight.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray or line them with parchment paper.

Step 3

Place remaining 1/4 cup sugar in a shallow dish. Scoop out dough by the scant tablespoonful and, with lightly oiled hands, roll into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in sugar and place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake cookies, 1 sheet at a time, until golden on the bottom, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
