Healthy Cookies: Boot Tracks Recipe
This Boot Tracks cookie recipe, made with a waffle iron instead of in an oven, is a quick chocolate dessert. This video shows the secret to a healthy cookie recipe: use whole-wheat pastry flour for extra fiber without making the cookies too dense.
Boot Tracks are a quick, no-fuss, chewy chocolate cookie made with a waffle iron instead of an oven. First, cream 1/2 cup butter and 2/3 cup sugar in a medium bowl. Beat in 2 eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Add 1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour for a tender cookie, 6 tablespoons cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons canola oil and 1/2 teaspoon espresso powder. Beat until thoroughly combined. Drop the batter by rounded teaspoonfuls onto the preheated, ungreased waffle iron. Use two spoons, one to scoop and one to scrape dough onto the waffle iron. Close the waffle iron and cook until the cookies are puffed and cooked through, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Dust the cookies with confectioner's sugar while still slightly warm, or drizzle cooled cookies with melted bittersweet and/or white chocolate.
