The flourless peanut butter cookie recipe on my blog is one of the most frequently viewed posts. As a result, I know you will equally love these Flourless Chocolate Cookies. My mom found the recipe in a magazine insert and brought it to me to try. And boy was my family glad she did! They are delicious and oh so easy. You need to make them.
Chewy Flourless Chocolate Cookies (Naturally Gluten Free)
1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup Dutch processed cocoa (I used Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa but any decent cocoa should be fine)
2 tsp cornstarch (i was out of cornstarch and therefore substituted tapioca starch)
1/4 tsp salt
2 egg whites
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 300.
Mix together sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Gradually add egg whites, stirring with a spoon until mixture forms a dough. (Mixture should be thick enough to form into balls; if not, gradually add in more powdered sugar and cocoa). I had to add about 1/4 cup of cocoa and 1/4 cup of powdered sugar to get the dough to a consistency that could be rolled into balls.
Add nuts and mix well.
Form dough into about 15 balls and place on parchment lined baking sheet. Bake 15-19 min, until glossy and crackled. Cool completely (yeah right! warm cookies are the best!! but do let them cool for at least 5 min so that they hold their shape. )
Enjoy!!! preferably with some nice, cold milk!
