How to Make Chocolate Flourless Cookies
Prepare. Lightly coat cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray or lightly grease with parchment paper and lightly coat. (Even using parchment paper needs to be greased so the cookies don’t stick together). While cookies rest, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
dry ingredients. Sift together the powdered sugar, cocoa powder and salt in a large bowl.
wet ingredients. Whisk egg whites in a small bowl. Whisk egg whites and vanilla extract into dry ingredients. It will be sticky like glue. Stir in chocolate chips.
bake. Pour batter into tablespoon-sized balls on a greased cookie sheet, at least 2 inches apart. I like to use a cookie scoop for this. Allow to sit on the baking sheet for 30 minutes. Bake in preheated oven for 7-9 minutes or until top looks cracked.
Add some remixes! These fudge cookie brownies are absolutely delicious. However, you can easily add flavor and texture with chopped nuts, chocolate chips, and even dried fruits like cranberries. Bake them at the same temperature, just add a minute to the bake time. Bonus: adding these to larger sized cookies will help them to be firmer.
Tips + Storage Information
- Resting the batsman is key. The longer the cookie batter sits, the longer you will have a film forming on each cookie. Film formation is actually an important step in getting the desired results. This will help the cookies hold their shape as they bake. You know the film is firm enough when you can lightly touch the tops of the cookies without getting your fingers. This will take about 30 minutes. Anything less can lead to a mess.
- use large eggs Otherwise the batter will be too runny or dry. Three large egg whites measure just under ½ cup.
- This cocoa brand It does make a difference in taste. Stick to natural and Dutch craft cocoa blends. If you don’t like one brand, try another.
- I don’t recommend using artificial sweeteners Because they don’t melt and spread in the oven like sugar does. Propagation can already be tricky in this recipe.
- Put the batter into a gallon of Ziploc.cut corners and Squeeze out the batter with a tube into groups of the same size.
- Don’t throw away your yolks! ! Well, you can if you want, but did you know you can refrigerate the egg yolks for later use? Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Use them to make one of our delicious recipes like our Key Lime Pie or Boston Cream Pie.
shop These cookies will keep for 4-5 days in an airtight container.
For longer storage, stack them in freezer-safe containers, separate the layers with parchment paper, and then freeze 1-2 months. Thaw and enjoy.
