 I've enjoyed seeing the recipes for fat-free cookies.  Here's one of my 
 favorites --- it's not really a cookie but a brownie-type dessert.
                                         Hot Fudge Brownie
 Heat oven to 350 F.  In a large mixing bowl, combine
 1 cup flour
 3/4 cup granulated sugar
 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
 2 tsp baking powder
 1/2 tsp salt (optional)
 1/2 cup skim milk
 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
 1 tsp vanilla extract
 Stir to blend.  Spoon into an 8X8 inch baking pan spray with cooking spray.
 In a medium-sized bowl, combine
 3/4 cup brown sugar
 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
 3/4 to 1 3/4 cup hot water (see note)
 Stir to blend and pour over batter in prepared pan.  Bake for 40 minutes.
 Serve with nonfat frozen yogurt, if desired.
 Note:  A fudgy sauce forms on the bottom of the brownie as it bakes.  The 
 consistency of the sauce depends on the amount of hot water you use in the 
 recipe.  If you use the maximum amout, it's like a chocolate syrup; with the 
 minimum amount it's more like a pudding.  I think I usually use about 1 1/4 
 cup for a medium-thick sauce, which I spoon up over the yogurt to make a hot 
 fudge brownie sundae kind of thing.
 I have served this a number of times to unsuspecting fat-craving friends, 
 always with great success.
