Flourless Chocolate Cookies
Prep time 15 mins
Cook time 15 mins
Serves: 24 cookies
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- ⅔ cup cocoa powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 to 4 egg whites, at room temperature
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup dried cherries or nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Spray the parchment paper lightly with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. Beat in two egg whites and the vanilla extract until the batter is moistened. You’re looking for a brownie-like, thick and fudgy batter consistency. If it seems too thick, add another egg white – then a 4th one if it still seems too thick.
Fold in chocolate chips, cherries or nuts.
Spoon batter onto the prepared baking sheets in 12 evenly spaced mounds per cookie sheet.
Bake about 14 minutes, until the tops are glossy and lightly cracked.
Slide the parchment paper (with the cookies) onto wire racks. Cool completely.
Note: This recipe came from the “internet” somewhere, but we can’t remember where nor when. They are delicious and I would like to give credit, but simply can’t.
