Enjoy gluten-free Espresso Chocolate Fudge Cookies with ice cold ice cream. Mix 'em and bake 'em in the morning. Eat'em in the afternoon, then freeze 'em. One cookie at a time, they'll call your name (really shout at you) until the whole box is gone. You won't be disappointed. Leave your comments below and let me know how you liked them.

This recipe comes from my good friend Patricia who owns the website butteryum.org. Her's is a site that is impeccable for its photography and tutorials. She has hundreds of excellent recipes. Visit the original post here. She calls this cookie Gluten Free Fudge Cookies. You might notice that the only change I made is in the name.

Instructions

MISE EN PLACE FOR THE COOKIE DOUGH

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line two half sheet pans with Silpat liners.
  • Sift the confectioners sugar, cocoa powder, espresso powder, and salt together in the bowl of a stand mixer. Measure the egg whites and vanilla together and set aside.

METHOD FOR THE COOKIE DOUGH

  • Add the egg white mixture to the dry ingredients, and on low speed combine until the dough is smooth and glossy. Let the cookie dough rest for 10 minutes at room temperature. At this point the dough will thicken and become sticky.

BAKE THE COOKIES

  • Bake on the center rack for 8-12 minutes. The cookies should begin to crack when they're done. Because of their texture, they won't over bake easily. Just make sure they are firm to the touch before removing them from the oven.

COOL THE COOKIES

  • Allow the cookies to cool completely on the sheet pan.

Thinking I'll try them this weekend. Does it matter which type of cocoa? Regular or dutch?

Kimberlie 2017-01-06

Hi Terri, No, it doesn't matter what kind of cocoa you use, just so long as you really like the flavour of whichever you choose. Obviously, the dutch will have a smoother effect, but if you have a dark roasted cocoa, this will work too. Be careful not to over bake them because as they cool, they will become firm. You'll want to keep them nice and chewy. Let me know!
