These cookies were a hit a Labor Day cook-out. I searched (at the last minute) for a gluten-free, cholesterol-free dessert to bring to the cook-out to accomodate all dietary restrictions. Thanks GourmetChris for posting this recipe. The cookies were very tasty. They are chewy, but not too chewy and they pack a powerful punch of chocolate. All the women asked for the recipe. I love the fact that they are gluten-free and cholesterol-free!
These are delicious! I have made these multiple times now. I make them a little healthier by omitting the chocolate chips and replacing them with chopped pecans or with just 1 chocolate chip in the center. I have made them without refrigerating the dough and they come out just fine, less chewy right away, but after putting in the fridge and cooling they are great! I let them cool about 7-10 minutes before scraping off the parchment paper (clean spatula every 2-3 cookies). I like to use these when I make http://www.recipezaar.com/299526. I calculated that each cookie was only 1 point with WW and 62 calories (w/o the chocolate chips)!
When I read the ingredients I thought this would turn out like meringues. NOT! They are lovely, chewy cookies, perfect for chocoholics. I wanted to make them as posted for a fair review, but I will try them again experimenting with Splenda for part of the sugar. I'll update my review if it works. Made for PAC Fall '07.
