These cookies. Crispy on the outside, fudgey and chewy on the inside. *drools*

I’m heading out for an Oscar party this evening and wanted to bring something decadent and delicious, but also something that wouldn’t take up several hours of my weekend to make.

I found this recipe here

Made a few adjustments, as I usually do,  and damn, these cookies fit the bill.  Also? They’re gluten free!

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups icing sugar
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 ½ cups PC chocolate chunks
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla paste
Directions:
1.  Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line 2 large baking sheets with silpats or parchment paper.
2. Mix sugar, cocoa, and salt in a bowl. Stir in chocolate chips. Set aside.
3. Whip egg whites and vanilla until they start to form soft peaks.
4. Fold in dry ingredients until batter is just moistened. (Do not overbeat batter or it will stiffen.)
5. Drop batter by heaping teaspoonful onto baking sheets in evenly spaced mounds.
6. Bake cookies until tops are lightly cracked and glossy, about 13-14 minutes.

7. Let cool and then transfer to wire racks  using a spatula to cool completely. Careful, they may be soft and fragile.
8. Serve same day, or place in air-tight container for later.
Will make about 15ish cookies
Hooray for Oscar parties and hooray for these cookies!
