You know how dietary foods that leave out sugar, or butter, or flour never taste as good as the original recipes that have all the "bad" ingredients included?
Well, that's not the case with these guys! These flourless dark chocolate cookies are free of gluten, but full of flavor! They are wonderful!
So, if you know someone who loves a good cookie and can eat everything but the gluten, this is the recipe for them!
Heavenly Flourless Dark Chocolate Cookies
1 1/2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
3 large egg whites (room temperature)
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt
non-stick cooking spray
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Spray large baking sheet with cooking spray, then line with parchment paper.
Melt 1 cup of the chocolate chips with a double boiler.
Using electric mixer, beat egg whites in large bowl until whites stiffen to form soft peaks.
Gradually beat in 1 cup of sugar.
Continue beating until mixture resembles marshmallow creme.
Whisk 1 cup sugar, cocoa, cornstarch, and salt in a medium bowl to blend.
On low, beat dry ingredients into meringue.
Stir in lukewarm chocolate and 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
Dough will become very stiff.
Roll (1) tbsp into ball and place on prepared baking sheet.
Repeat with remaining dough, spacing cookies about 2 inches apart.
Bake about 8 - 10 minutes until cookies become puffed and tops crack. Be careful not to overbake!
Cool on sheets on rack for 10 minutes.
Transfer cookies to rack and let them cool.
