Flourless Chocolate Cookies
Hubby is an assistant principal and is chaperoning prom tonight. So while he is dancing the night away in his three piece suit, I’m trying to stay up until he gets home around midnight. That sentence is so laughable–hubby doesn’t dance, especially not at work in front of his students. He’ll be standing, like the military man that he is, scaring kids into behaving with a strict look on his face. And there is
no way a very slim chance that I’ll make it to midnight.
Actually, I’m going to direct you to The Recipe Girl because it is her recipe and I made no changes to it. So head on over there and check it out. **Oops, I did make one change: I didn’t have any Dutch-process cocoa powder, so I used my unsweetened cocoa powder and added 1/4 tsp of baking soda.**
Verdict: These were delicious! They had such and interesting texture, fudgy on the bottom, but meringue-like (crispy, fragile) on the top.
Husband’s take: Ate two, but then decided that they were too sweet. Don’t worry, I ate the last cookie on his plate. It didn’t go to waste. They are very sweet (perhaps it is the 3 cups of powdered sugar) and are better eaten in small portions.
Changes I would make: Next time, to try and cut the sweetness a little, I think I would either throw in some nuts, or some espresso powder, or even a little cinnamon. Oh, and I would make them a little smaller.
