Chewy Gooey Flourless Chocolate Cookies

Sometimes it works to substitute flours found in regular recipes.  Sometimes it’s just better to go flourless.  My daughter loves to make peanut butter chocolate chip cookies for her dad when making a meal for us.  They’re yummy!  I think the ingredients are peanut butter, eggs, chocolate chips and sugar.  Another short list… you know I like short lists!!

But this week I craved chocolate (I say that as if it is something new… it is not!)  This recipe called to me.  It did NOT disappoint.

Short list of ingredients (6)… Crispy-chewy, soooooo good!!  You put them away in an airtight container to get them out of sight!!  The only thing I will do different next time is use a smaller scoop to make smaller cookies (and bake a shorter period of time.)  Watch them carefully – 14 minutes may be too long even for the larger cookies.  They spread very thin, and the larger cookies were more difficult to peel off the parchment without breaking.  Of course that meant more cookies for me to eat…
