gluten free flourless double chocolate pecan cookies!

oh my goodness! you are in for a real treat with these babies. i got this recipe from an issue of martha stewarts everyday food.. these cookies are moist chewy and oh so chocolatey! and the best part is that there's no fat in them, so you can sit back and enjoy these cookie's without.. well too much guilt =] seriously though.. these are hands down the best chocolate cookie's i've ever eaten!

  • 3 cups confectioners sugar
  • 3/4 cups cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 5 ounces semi sweet bakers chocolate, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups pecans (or other nut), chopped
  • 4 egg whites (room temperature)

#1. whisk together sugar, cocoa and salt.


#2. mix in the chocolate and pecan chunks.

#3. add the egg whites and stir just until incorporated (be careful not to over mix)

#4. with large cookie scoop, scoop out cookie dough 3 inches apart on baking sheet.

#5. flatten your cookies with the palm of your hand and place in a 325 degree oven. cook for 10 minutes, rotate pan and cook for another 10 minutes.. until tops are dry and cracked.

#6. let cool on pan for a few minutes. move to wire rack and let cool completely.

mhmmm! make them..
you won't be disappointed.
