Number of Servings: 36


    6 oz dark chocolate (preferably 60% or greater)
    2 large egg whites, at room temperature
    1/8 tsp. cream of tartar
    1/4 cup granulated white sugar
    1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
    3/4 cup finely ground almonds


Melt dark chocolate in microwave at 30-second intervals on 70% power until smooth. Set aside to cool slightly. You could also do this in a double-boiler.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray two large cookie sheets with nonstick spray. Using an electric mixer, beat egg whites and cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Continue beating, adding in sugar and vanilla slowly, until mixture forms stiff peaks.

Gently fold in chocolate and almonds until fully incorporated. Drop teaspoons of batter onto the prepared cookie sheets, leaving one inch between cookies.

Bake 10-12 minutes, switching racks (put bottom cookie sheet on top rack and top cookie sheet on bottom rack) halfway through baking to ensure even browning. Cookies are done when there is a light crust on the outside, but they are soft on the inside.

Makes 36 cookies.

Number of Servings: 36
