A delectable flourless chocolate cookie AKA chocolate meringue cookies, adapted from my friend, Chris, from The Sucre Cafe Farine
Prep Time:15 mins
Cook Time:15 mins
Total Time:30 minutes
Yield:24 cookies 1x
3 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 egg whites (no need to beat like with a traditional meringue)
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350º. Line baking sheets with parchment.
Stir together all the ingredients except the chocolate chips. The mixture will eventually come together. Scrape the bowl and mix again. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Drop by tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets. Reshape if necessary (I used my spatula). Bake till the tops are slightly cracked and glossy, about 15 minutes. Cool only briefly before moving to a cooling rack. Cookies are fragile, but they will stick to parchment if not removed shortly after baking.
