Something Good Abigail Cookies, Or, Gluten-free Chocolate Dreams


Elizabeth graciously responded to my request for the lost cookie recipe with this comment:

"I named them "Something Good Abigail Cookies". How do you like that?"

I like it.  The only problem is that if I don't make up a recipe by my lonesome, I like to give credit for it in the post.  I didn't make this recipe up, as much as I wish I had, so somewhere out there in the culinary ether of the internet is a clever, happy baker who created this cookie.

Thank you, Unknown Baker.  Your Cookie is most marvelous.


Something Good Unknown Baker Cookies-- Gluten Free!

Grease a baking sheet and preheat oven to 350 degrees.


1 and 1/2 cups chocolate chips, separated
3 egg whites
2 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar, separated
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt

1.  Melt one cup chocolate chips and set aside until they cool to lukewarm.

2. Beat the egg whites to soft peaks and gradually beat in 1 cup powdered sugar.  Keep beating until they reach a marshmallow consistency.

 3.  In a mixing bowl, whisk 1 cup powdered sugar, the baking cocoa, cornstarch, and salt. 

4.  Fold/mix the egg white mixture into the dry ingredients and then fold in the lukewarm chocolate.  Gently stir in the remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips (dough will be stiff) and then roll balls thickly in the remaining powdered sugar.  

5.  Place about 2 inches apart on cookie sheets and bake until puffed and tops crack.  Eat and eat and eat and eat.

(And Elizabeth even documented me taking the above pictures of these cookies during their visit 2 summers ago.  I was taking pictures of cookies when I should have been making us supper from those garden vegetables.  What a dork I am.)

Oh my....these look absolutely delicious and even better - they are gf!!!! YAY!!! I think I may have to get the ingredients next time I go to town ( can I justify a visit just to get the ingredients??!!??).

Abigail said...

Yes, you can justify anything! I didn't know you were gf. I'll have to post my Very Favorite Gluten Free Chocolate Cake (that I've only made one time) sometime. It is dreamy.

Renata said...

Yes please!! I would love, love, love that recipe!! I actually have all the ingredients and intend to make these today (and no, I didn't go into town early- I forgot hubby had the van that day:)

It's that time again. I just revisited to find the dill pickle recipe and decided to stop by and print this so I can make these soon. Yum!

Abigail said...

Yum is right! I wish I could be making them for gf visitors from Buffalo! :)
