These cookies are extremely rich and chocolatey, yet they have a light texture. They are quick to throw together, and taste delicious.
You don't want to overbake these, but you do want to make sure you bake them enough. I added about 5 minutes to my bake time, and still could have gone a few more minutes I think. These were so very yummy (I say were because we already ate them all, haha!).
Adapted from this recipe
Makes about 3 dozen
12 oz powdered sugar
2 oz cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 egg whites (can use yolks to make a key lime pie)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat your oven to 350º.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, using whisk attachment, stir together the dry ingredients. On low speed add egg whites one at a time. (The batter will look dry, up until you add the final egg white). Add vanilla. Mix on high for 2 minutes, until batter is thick (it should resemble brownie batter).
Spoon batter onto a cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake until they look puffed up, and you start to smell them, about 20 minutes. Allow to fully cool before removing from the cookie sheet. Enjoy!
