Do you need a quick, easy and inexpensive gluten-free dessert for the holidays? How easy? You probably have all the ingredients in your house right now. How inexpensive? The entire recipe cost me about $7.00 to make about 2 dozen cookies. That makes them about 29 cents each. If you eat gluten-free, I dare you to tell me the last time you were able to walk into a bakery and buy a gf cookie for less than $1.00. At that price, I think the recipe is worth a shot.
Adapted from Kumquat.
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 2/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 4 large egg whites
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
Preheat oven to 350F.
Combine powdered sugar, cocoa powder, salt and chocolate chips in a bowl.
Add in egg whites and vanilla. Stir well to combine. Once combined it should be the consistency of school glue. Very chocolately school glue with chocolate chips. If school glue looked and smelled like this, I think there would be a lot more glue eaters.
Spoon batter onto parchment lined baking sheets with a 1 1/4 inch cookie scoop(about 2 tablespoons).
Bake for about 14 minutes. When done, they will be shiny on top, starting to crack and the edges will look done. And your house will smell like Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. It’s amazing.
Let them cool slightly, then slide parchment paper on to cooling racks. Let them cool completely then peel them off of parchment paper.
Tip: After they cool, if you put them in the freezer for about 10 minutes, they peel off the parchment paper much easier.
