GLUTEN FREE CHOCOLATE COOKIES

My life’s been quite the hustle lately, and last night these fudgy, chocolate, almost brownie like cookies were like a big hug. I did mention that they’re gluten free, right? I’ve been working toward a gluten free diet for an embarrassingly long time, and even though I absolutely need to never eat anything with wheat in it again for my health, when I have a shitty day my need for comfort food consistently wins. Last night I wanted to eat every cookie everywhere all at once and sink into a blissful food coma. Or a nap.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix powdered sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, and salt until well-blended.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk 2 egg whites until frothy. Discard yolks.
  4. Add 1 egg to egg whites. Whisk well.
  5. Add vanilla to egg mixture. Whisk well.
  6. Add egg mixture to dry ingredients. Mix until blended. The dough should be fairly stiff. If necessary, add a more powdered sugar and cocoa powder until a pudding like consistency is achieved. (The dough should hold shape on the cookie sheet.)
  7. If desired, add chocolate chips to dough; mix until blended.
  8. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper before baking. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes.
  9. Remove cookies from oven. Let sit on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before moving cookies to a wire rack to cool. Makes approximately 2 dozen cookies.
