Chocolate Crinkle Cookies by raspil Chocolate Crinkle Cookies by raspil
Gluten Free Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Heat oven to 350 degrees F

3 c confectioner's sugar
1/2 c cocoa powder
*zest of 1 orange
*1 t espresso powder
*2 c slivered almonds
1/4 t salt
4 egg whites, room temperature
1 T vanilla extract

THIS WILL BE MESSY. IT WILL BE WORTH IT.

Put the dry ingredients in one bowl, combine well.
Briefly whisk the whites and vanilla together with a hand mixer.
Add the whites/vanilla to the dry ingredients, fold briefly to combine.
CAREFULLY combine with the hand mixer on low speed.
Combine until they are just moistened.
On a cookie sheet lined with parchment, portion cookies out. They will spread on the sheet and while baking.
Bake 7 minutes, turn halfway, bake another 7 minutes.
Cool on a rack, store for up to three days.

I got about 15 cookies from this batch, it will all depend on how large you portion them out.

These are crispy on the outside, chewy and gooey chocolatey on the inside, even after a couple of days. I think I ate four of them the day I made them. It hurt my belly but I'd do it again.

*optional but really decadent additions

Omfg they do look amazing. I might even like this enough to translate the measurements. I've been thinking about posting recipes on here myself. I might give it a go.

You hooked me from the picture, but it was the 'gluten free' that was the last straw. There is no way I can NOT make these now.

(confectioner's sugar = castor sugar, right? and how big is a cup? I've never understood that...)

raspil Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2012   Writer
confectioner's sugar is powdered sugar (or 10x sugar).
a cup is a cup (8 oz), but should not be measured by weight for this recipe. weight vs "cup size" are rarely the same and can impact the way a recipe turns out, especially in baking.

So confectioner's sugar is icing sugar, okay. I've got that. Now I just have to try and find a cup that's the right size. This could be difficult. :|

...After some googling, I have discovered that an American measuring cup is 240ml. I can do that with a measuring jug. :D

a set of measuring cups is key for baking. make sure you get a set of dry (usually they will come on a little plastic hook with 1/4 cup, 1/3 cup, 1/2 cup and 1 cup sizes) and a set of wet (usually glass, with a little pour spout). Wet measure is for wet things, dry measure is for dry things. Sometimes they come out similar but it's good to have the two sets for certainty. I've always bought my stuff at the dollar stores. no need to splurge on these items.

Of course, these are american measures -- if it was all in grams, it would be easier for everyone.

Ha, I can't exactly go down to a dollar store and pick up some American measuring cups. I'd have to get them imported. :|

One more question, does the 't' here stand for teaspoon or tablespoon?
Reply
:iconraspil:
raspil Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2012   Writer
really? wow. i guess you'd have to do the conversions, then. it'll be worth it; i just use google for it.

t is teaspoon, T is tablespoon.

and as far as the spices/flavorings go, I like to go heavy on them (depending on what they are). spices can always be adjusted to suit your tastes.

Pretty good, but they're the only cookie I liked better room temp rather than first thing out of of the oven.

i agree with that -- they're good on their own, like they don't "need" milk to enjoy them.

Aha.

I'm still working on that ballbuster of a prompt. I have another 1k to write, so I'm glad. I wish I could've done it faster, but I got too sidetracked on St. Paddy's day xD

Finish it when you have time. I can only hope I can do the same.

...Well, being skinny was fun while it lasted.

Cookies look freaking amazing. I'm not much of a chef myself (I can make toast but it usually comes out burnt) but I will hopefully try making some soon. Or I can just stare at this picture and drool on my keyboard until it dies.

These were very easy to make but for real, they were a mess to clean up. You can use a manual whisk to combine the wet and dry to minimize the mess but it will take longer. If you use an electronic hand mixer, make sure you use the lowest speed or cocoa and confectioner's sugar will fly all over the place.

Technically, these shouldn't be too fattening; there's no butter, so the only calories will come from the sugar. These here are about three inches across, give or take.
