Chewy Gooey Flourless Chocolate Cookies

February 27, 2012

I stumbled across a picture of these cookies on Pinterest a number of weeks ago, and — enthralled, as I have a number of friends for whom gluten is an enemy, I immediately clicked away to Recipe Girl to grab myself a copy of the recipe. I first tested the cookies on Jan 21, 2012 and took them to a Stitch & Bitch to rave reviews. I made them a 2nd time for a party on Feb 24 — where I had a number of requests for the recipe, hence this blog post.

[Sorry for the focus-challenged picture, but I wanted to show you the dough mounds - these are still too big, and ran into each other during baking].

Modifications – I stayed very true to the recipe. It is simple AND delicious!

On Jan 21st, I used 4 egg whites and Callebaut bittersweet chocolate chips. I noted that 14 minutes was the perfect baking time, and the cookies where very rich so, next time, I should use teaspoons instead of tablespoons to spoon the batter onto the cookie sheet (which I covered in parchment paper without the non-stick spray).

On Feb 24, I used 3 egg whites (2 of the eggs were larger), and mixed some semi-sweet chocolate in with the bitter (again, I used Callebaut, though this time I chopped the chocolate as I didn’t have any chips). It is important to note that even spooned in heaping teaspoons I believe these cookies are still too large. They are rich and chewy and so tasty, but I think smaller would be better. Many of the guests at the party broke the cookies in half and shared. Also note, I cannot fit 12 on a single baking sheet – they have a large amount of spread – 6 mounds is better.

Rating: 5 stars!!

        I am on Recipe Girl right now looking at all the other great ideas. Thank you so much. I really appreciate your thoroughness about the size of spoon and cooking time! That will be a big help, as gluten free items always cook oddly anyway…

        Haven’t gotten around to them yet, life got busy, but can’t wait! Still look at them and drool… : )

        Somehow life has just been to crazy to bake cookies. How very sad is that. :(

        Oh, that IS sad!! Sometimes I have to bake because life is crazy!

        I am quickly approaching that stage. I think after this weekend I will finally have the time. Sadly, no moment to spare until then. Every time I see the words “Chewy Gooey Flourless Chocolate Cookies” though in this thread, my mouth waters and my tummy grumbles. Haha.

        You MUST bake them!! They are super rich (so make them small if that is not your thing) but so tasty!! I think I might find time to make them myself this weekend!! And, actually, they aren’t that time consuming. Just remember to set out the eggs ahead of time (to bring them up to room temp).

        I got super sick (strep throat) and am just now returning from that. Thanks for the egg-reminder. I can’t wait to make them. I have all the ingredients, now just have to get back the appetite!
