Red Wine-Chocolate Cookies

Red Wine-Chocolate Cookies


  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons red wine
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chunks
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees . In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together oil, honey, egg white, 3/4 cup sugar, and 2 tablespoons red wine until smooth. Add to dry mixture and stir until the dough comes together. Fold in the chocolate chunks.
  3. Place 1 1/2-teaspoon rounds of dough, 2 inches apart, onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake until set and dry on top, about 10 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through. Set aside to cool.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium heat, bring remaining 1/4 cup sugar and 1 cup wine to a boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Cook until syrupy and reduced, about 7 minutes. Let cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally.
  5. With an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until fluffy and smooth. Slowly stream in the wine syrup until incorporated and smooth, scraping the bowl as needed. Transfer frosting to a resealable plastic bag or a piping bag fitted with a tip, then pipe frosting on top of cookies.
