Flourless Chocolate Almond Cookies

Submitted by: DMPRIDER

Introduction

I got this recipe from a Low-Iodine Cookbook compiled by the Thyroid Cancer Survivor's Association. The original recipe called for a yield of 12 big cookies. I got 26 good sized cookies from this recipe. See my NOTE below. I got this recipe from a Low-Iodine Cookbook compiled by the Thyroid Cancer Survivor's Association.

Ingredients

    2 cups chopped almonds (I used sliced)
    1/4 cup cocoa powder
    2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    4 large egg whites

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix cocoa powder, sugar, and salt. In a different
bowl, mix vanilla and egg whites. Slowly mix liquid
into dry, increasing to medium speed until mixture is
glossy—about 2 minutes. Stir in almonds.

Drop 1/4 cup batter 3 inches apart onto a large
cookie sheet lined with parchment (that aluminum
“release” foil works great, too). Put in oven and
immediately reduce heat to 325 degrees F. Cook
until small cracks appear and they are nearly firm to
touch (16 minutes or so), Cool on the paper or foil,
then remove. Return oven to 350 degrees before the
next batch. Makes 12 big cookies.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Rather than as written above, I dropped these using a tablespoon and got 26 good sized cookies. The calculated calories are for 26 servings of 1 cookie each.
