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! :)
