Flourless Fudge Cookies - Ugly but Delicious

There is something about flourless cookies and cakes that sets them apart from those with flour.  They are "gushier" without being wet.  They seem to have a stronger flavor, in this case , chocolate.  The photos from King Arthur's Flour, the source of the recipe, were fabulous and those photos are the reason, I made the cookies.  Mine are ugly but I would make them again in a minute.  If you like a strong chocolate flavor, these are the cookies for you.

Flourless Fudge Cookies - adapted from King Arthur's Flour

Ingredients:

2 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon coffee powder, optional but good

1 cup cocoa powder, Dutch-process

3 large egg whites

2 teaspoons gluten-free vanilla extract

Method:

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Line  two cookie sheets with parchment, and grease the parchment.

Stir together all of the ingredients till smooth.

Drop the soft, batter-like dough onto the prepared baking sheets in 1 1/2" circles; a tablespoon cookie scoop works well here.

Bake for 8 minutes; they should spread, become somewhat shiny, and develop faintly crackly tops. (I didn't get those beautiful cracks.)

Remove the cookies from the oven, and allow them to cool right on the pan.

Eat and enjoy.
