Chocolate Fudge Cookies

We made these cookies because we didn’t have any chocolate chips to make the peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. They came out great! I might try adding a little water next time to make the batter a little thinner.

Chocolate Fudge Cookies

Ingredients:

2 1/4 cups confectioners sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup cocoa powder

3 egg whites

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions:

Stir together all of ingredients until the ingredients are smooth. (My batter was super thick, but the cookies came out great.) Scoop the batter on to oiled baking sheets. Bake the cookies for 8 minutes in a 350 degree oven. The cookies should look cracked and shiny.

Gluten-Free Graham Crackers

I just came upon this recipe. We love magic cookie bars, and s’mores, but they are hard to make if you don’t have the graham crackers. I have not made these yet, but can’t wait to try.

Samoas

These sound so good! They are gluten-free. I have a feeling that you can replace the gluten-free flour with all-purpose flour if you are not gluten-free. Thanks to Heather who inspired me to find a gluten-free recipe, and to Betsy who has the gluten-free recipe.
