Merry Christmas!

We don’t really celebrate in our household…but cookies are always a plus!

These were extremely well-received by all who had a taste. No one would know how simple they are (and no added fat or flour, if you don’t count the chocolate chips🙂 ). Very sweet, fudgy, and rich, with a crackly, shiny top and cool minty taste.

Flourless Peppermint Fudge Cookies

Adapted from King Arthur Flour
Makes about 20 cookies

• 2 ¼ c (9 oz) confectioner’s sugar
• ¼ t salt
• 1 c (3 oz) cocoa powder
• 3 large egg whites
• 1 t vanilla
• 1 t peppermint extract
• 1 c dark chocolate and mint morsels (from Nestle)

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment pper.
2. Stir together first 6 ingredients until smooth; fold in chocolate chips.
3. Drop tbs of dough onto prepared sheets about 2” apart (they will spread).
4. Bake for 7-8 min; they should puff and spread, and develop somewhat shiny, faintly crackly tops.
5. Remove from oven, and cool on pan.

P.S.: Please excuse the sporadic blogging; I’ve been eating and taking photos but life (namely finals) always gets in the way of uploading. It’s been a rough first semester, but one filled with memories for sure.
