Chocolate Frosting Cookies

Are you in need of a chocolate treat for Valentine's Day that's also really easy? I had some leftovers from a tub of Betty Crocker chocolate frosting and decided to experiment with frosting in a cookie. The resulting cookie is chewy and chocolatey. I put chocolate frosting on a few of the cookies, but it really wasn't needed. It did make for a great chocolate cookie sandwich, though. As a bonus, this cookie is so easy to make since there is no butter or sugar to measure.

1 cup chocolate frosting
1 egg white
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
With an electric mixer, beat the frosting for one minute. Next add the egg white and mix. Gradually add in the dry ingredients. 
Drop tablespoons of dough onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet before moving to a wire rack.
Yields 12 cookies
