I know what you are thinking, “Who wants to bake in this heat!” I thought I was a little crazy myself…but I baked these last night and they came out soooo good!

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon mint extract
1 large egg white, beaten

In a bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and cocoa together. In another bowl, combine the brown sugar, granulated sugar, butter, applesauce, vanilla, mint and egg white. Beat with a hand mixer until well blended. Combine the flour mixture with the sugar to form the dough. Roll into a log and cover with plastic wrap. Put into the freezer for about an hour. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Slice into 1/4 inch pieces and place on the greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 10 minutes. Remove and let cool.
