Recipe



Ingredients

Servings:
  • 3 large egg whites (if you're using small eggs from your own chickens, use 4 egg whites)
  • 2.25 Cup confectioner's sugar
  • .75 Cup Dutch Press cocoa powder
  • .25 Cup Black cocoa powder (you can just use 1 cup of Dutch Press Cocoa and eliminate the Black Cocoa if it's too hard to find)
  • 2 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Teaspoon espresso powder
  • 1 Cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease a sheet of parchment paper on top of a baking sheet. Set aside. 
Mix together all of the ingredients except the chocolate chips until completely combined, scraping down the bottom and sides of the bowl. Then stir in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed. At this point, the texture of the dough should be about halfway between the consistency of cake batter and regular cookie dough. Scoop the dough onto the greased parchment paper baking sheet, making 1.5-inch circles. The cookies will spread a lot when you bake them, so give at least 4 inches of space between each cookie dough mound. Place the sheet in the oven and bake for 8-9 minutes. When you remove them from the oven, they may still look a bit wet, but let them sit and cool to room temperature on the baking sheet before attempting to remove them. Be careful when removing them after cooling has completed, however, because their softness can cause them to tear if you're especially rough. I recommend greasing your spatula to help make moving them off the parchment paper easier. Plate the cookies and serve immediately.
