Flourless Chocolate Cookies
Yield: about 2 dozen cookies
 
Ingredients
  • 2½ cups powdered sugar
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I used dark dutch process)
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 egg whites (from large eggs)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips or roughly chopped chocolate
  • flaky sea salt, for topping (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line cookie sheets with parchment paper or silpats. (Using 2 helps to keep a nice rotation of cooling/baking going.) Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl stir together the powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. Fold in the egg whites until well combined, followed by the vanilla, and chocolate chips. (The batter will look like brownie batter with lots of chocolate chip lumps.)
  3. Using a small/medium cookie scoop- portion dough about 2 inches apart on your cookie sheet. (They spread quite a bit.) Sprinkle with sea salt. (the dough looks a bit funny but they will bake up beautifully)
  4. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until the edges are set, the tops are shiny and slightly cracked. Allow cookies to cool 100% before removing from the trays with a spatula.
