chocolate-hannukah-stars recipe

 Here is a recipe I used to make Chanukah cookies and it worked very
 well.  I seem to remember having to work in a little extra flour
 because the dough was sticky, but I may be mistaken. In any event,
 they had a nice flavor and didn't last very long.  They might be good
 with a teaspoon of extract added as well... maybe cherry or mint.

      1/4  cup           prune butter 
    1      cup           sugar
    2                    eggs worth of egg substitute
    2      cups          all-purpose flour
      1/2  cup           cocoa
    1      teaspoon      baking powder
      1/2  teaspoon      baking soda
      1/2  teaspoon      salt

 In a large bowl, beat prune butter, sugar and egg substitute on medium
 speed of electric mixer.  Stir together flour, cocoa, baking powder,
 baking soda and salt; add to butter mixture, beating until well
 blended.  Cover; refrigerate dough until firm enough to handle.
 Preheat oven to 350 F.  On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to
 1/8-inch thickness; cut with star-shapped cookie cutter (can use
 menorah, dreidel and others).  Place on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake
 5 to 7 minute, or until no imprint remains when touched lightly in the
 center.  Cool 1 minute; remove cookie sheet to wire rack.  Cool
 completely.  Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.  Makes about 4 dozen
