Brownie Cookies for Ella

My blog friend Elizabeth is an Orthodox Christian.  She keeps the fasts decreed by the Church and therefore has a large number of recipes that just happen to be egg and dairy free.  When I saw the Chocolate Brownie Cookies I knew which one we had to try first.

BROWNIE COOKIES -makes 9 dozen
1 1/2 c vegan margarine                                          3 c white sugar
4 1/2 t vanilla                                                             4 1/2 c flour
1 1/2 c cocoa                                                               1/2 t salt
3/4 t baking powder and soda                                enough water to make a fairly thick dough

Cream margarine and sugar, add vanilla.  In another bowl, combine all dry ingredients.  Add to the creamed ingredients and add enough water to make a fairly thick dough (around 1/2 c).  Make 1 inch balls (I have a scoop) and flatten with a glass dipped in sugar.
  Bake 350F for 8-10 minutes.

Thank you so much Elizabeth.  Ella's been doing so well with her new diet, but was going to revolt soon if she didn't get some cookies/chocolate.
