The Twelve Days of Goodies - Day 3

Day 3 brings another super easy recipe and a gluten free one at that. I have friends and family who have to eat gluten free, so I figured I should include a cookie they could enjoy. And it doesn't hurt that's it's chocolate and super yummy.

Flourless Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

3 cups powdered sugar
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/8 tsp. salt
2 to 4 large egg whites, at room temperature
1 Tbsp. pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Prepare your cookie sheets by lining with Silpats or parchment paper.

Whisk together the powdered sugar , cocoa and salt in a bowl.

Whisk in the vanilla and egg whites starting with just two of the whites. Beat the batter until moistened. It should look like brownie batter. If it's too thick, then add another egg white, and then the fourth egg white if still too thick.

Fold in chocolate chips. Use a scoop to portion the cookies onto the cookie sheets leaving room for the cookies to spread. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the cookies have a lightly crackled and shiny top.

Store in an air tight container, if they last that long in your home. ;) Enjoy!
