Orange-Dark Chocolate Blossoms

Ingredients
1/2
cup tub-style vegetable oil spread
2/3
cup sugar or sugar substitute blend* equivalent to 2/3 cup sugar
1
teaspoon baking powder
1/8
teaspoon salt
1
egg white
1 1/2
40
dark chocolate kisses and/or stars

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine vegetable oil spread and butter. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until combined. Add sugar, baking powder, and salt. Beat until very light and fluffy, scraping bowl occasionally. Beat in egg white. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour and the orange peel. If necessary, cover and chill about 30 minutes or until dough is easy to handle.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place balls 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 7 to 9 minutes or just until edges are set and bottoms are very lightly browned.
  3. Immediately press a chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; cool. Makes about 40 cookies.
