Gluten Free Crammed with Chocolate Cookies
There is something special about baked goods made without flour. I saw this recipe on Creative Kitchen, a blog that has not only many terrific recipes but also, interesting ideas.
I made this recipe from that blog and I think, it has topped, all other chocolate cookies, at least for now. I am always looking for new favorites and it is going to take a lot to be better than this full flavored chocolate chewy cookie.
Flourless Chocolate Brownie Cookies (adapted - the only change I made was to bake these for less time)
3 cups powdered sugar
2/3 cup unsweetened Dutch-processed cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
3 large egg whites, at room temperature
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. Cover cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mix together powdered sugar, cocoa powder and sea salt. Whisk in egg whites until just moistened. Add in chocolate chips.
Spoon thick fudgy batter onto cookie sheets in small mounds.
Chill for 5 or so minutes to keep them from spreading when they bake.
Bake for 12 minutes or until tops are glossy and lightly cracked.
