Flourless Fudge Cookies

2 ¼ cup powdered sugar

¼ ts salt

1 ts espresso powder (optional)

1 cup dutch process cocoa powder

3 large egg whites

2 ts vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease two baking sheets, or line with parchment and grease the parchment.

In a medium mixing bowl, stir together all the ingredients until smooth, scraping the bottom and sides of the bowl as you stir. The dough will be soft and batterlike. If it’s still very thick, add another egg white.

Drop onto prepared baking sheets and bake for 8 minutes, until they have spread and are somewhat shiny with a slightly crackly top. Remove from the oven and allow them to cool on the pan for a few minutes before eating.
