Re: looking for a cookie recipe
I got this from food network a couple of years ago. It's a Paula Deen recipe- one of the few that doesn't call for a couple of sticks of butter. I looked on the site earlier, cos I was just gonna post a link, but it looks like they took it down. Thankfully, I had copied it to my gmail. It really does taste similar to the Safeway kind, but I'm not always sure it's worth it... you can sometimes find the cookies on sale for $1.99 per box on the day-old rack, and if I make them myself, I tend to eat too many. Somehow, I find it easier to take one and close the box... if it's the whole tray, sitting there, calling me... it's much more difficult to just take one. LOL
Paula Deen's Chocolate Chewy Cookies
2 cups powered sugar, sifted
2 tablespoons cocoa, sifted
¼ teaspoon salt
1/3 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
3 egg whites
1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Stir together sugar, cocoa, salt and flour. Add egg whites 1 at a time. Beat well, then stir in pecans. Batter will be very thin.
Drop by tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until cookies have begun to brown on bottom and appear set. Allow to sit for about 2 minutes undisturbed, then remove cookies to wire racks to cool. Store in airtight containers.
Makes 18 large cookies.
