After spending four hours wandering the city on the hunt for suiting for the hubby to be I had absolutely no interest in setting foot outside the door on Sunday so I decided to try these flourless cookies from Erin at meaningful eats, that a friend recently shared with me.
They are the perfect accompaniment to a rainy Sunday on the couch and the discovery of Nashville on Netflix... :-)
Flourless Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
3 cups powdered sugar
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 to 4 egg whites, at room temperature (I needed 4)
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and spray lightly with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, whisk the powdered sugar, cocoa powder and salt together.
Beat in three egg whites and the vanilla extract until the batter is moistened. The batter should be brownie-like. A thick and fudgy batter consistency. If it seems too thick, add another egg white.
Fold in the chocolate chips. I used a half cup of white and a half cup milk chips as that was all I had to hand.
Spoon batter onto the prepared baking sheets in evenly spaced mounds. Bake for about 15 minutes, until the tops are glossy and lightly cracked.
Use the parchment paper with the cookies to slide on to wire racks and allow to cool completely. If you can resist them long enough!
