Hi NIKKI P;
Thanx for the recipe;I saved it in the hope of someday baking them for guests on a low fat diet,,,, The fat in the pecans is a "healthy " fat thatshould be O.K. for those peopleincluding hubby& myself(watching fat intake to lower our cholesterol)The fat in the grated chocolate will be ignored by us !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
n Response to Eureka!!!! At last.:
For a very long time I have searched for a recipe for a chewy chocolate cookie like the one I have had from a Dominick's Store (Safeway store in other areas). In search of another recipe I saw being made I found it purely by accident. So I thought I would share. ( Nancy you will love these lots of nuts! ) Chocolate Chewies Makes 2 dozen cookies. 2 1/4 Cup powdered sugar 6 Tb cocoa powder 2 Tb flour 1/4 tsp salt 3 egg whites 3/4 tsp vanilla extract 2 Cups toasted pecans chopped very fine 1 ounce grated chocolate Pre heat oven to 325 degrees F. Line 2 cookie sheet with parchment. This is a must! In a mixing bowl beat powdered sugar, flour cocoa powder and salt. Add the egg whites and beat on high for 3 minutes. Add in the pecans and chocolate. Drop by tablespoon onto lined cookie sheets. Bake 15 to 18 minutes. Allow to cool on parchment before removing. It is not a misprint that there is no butter or shortening in this recipe. I now have to go find the recipe I was originally looking for......a cheesecake made with goat cheese.
