   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      3/4  cup           flour
      1/2  cup           unsweetened cocoa powder
    1      teaspoon      baking powder
      1/4  teaspoon      salt
      1/4  cup           canola oil
    1      cup           sugar
    1 1/2  teaspoons     vanilla extract
    4                    egg whites -- unbeaten
    2      cups          confectioner’s sugar
    2      to 3 Tbsp.    skim milk -- approx.
                         unsweetened cocoa powder -- for dusting
 
 Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a large nonstick cookie sheet with vegetable oil
 spray. 
 Sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt together. Set aside. Mix
 together the oil, sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla and the egg whites until well
 combined. Stir in the flour mixture. Chill for one hour. Using a 1/2 Tbsp.
 measure, scoop the dough onto the cookie sheet, leaving 2 inches between
 cookies. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the cookies are puffed and cooked
 through. Do not overcook.
 Transfer the cookies to a rack and cool completely. Mix together the
 confectioners' sugar, skim milk and remaining 1/2 tsp. vanilla unsil pasty.
 Add skim milk if necessary. Spread a small amount of vanilla frosting on
 each cookie. Put the cookies back on the rack, dust lightly with cocoa
 powder and allow the frosting to dry.
