Cookie Break

Last week I made cookies, the best I ever remember eating. I'm thinking you might like to try them. They came from Tropical Traditions recipe blog. Check out their website -- they have some wonderful recipes and great products. Here's the recipe:

Gluten Free Chocolate Coconut Chewies

2 ounce organic cocoa (about 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons)
11 ounce powdered sugar (about 2 3/4 cups)
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 egg whites, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 - 1 cup dried unsweetened coconut

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease or line baking sheet with parchment paper.

Sift dry ingredients (except coconut) together. You can use a stand mixer with a wisk attachment if you have it. Mix thoroughly.

On low speed and add egg whites, one at a time. Add vanilla extract and turn mixer on high for about 2 minutes, until the batter has thickened.

Gently and briefly fold the coconut in. Don't mix it in completely.

Drop batter (about the size of a rounded measuring tablespoon) onto a prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 13-15 minutes. Cookie should be puffed and cracked. You can let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet or remove them and let cool on a wire rack.
