This chocolate cookie is very simple. Only 5 ingredients and a bake time of only 10 minutes. There is no matzo or cake meal in this cookie, so it isn't heavy and doesn't taste like a traditional Passover dessert. Be careful - they are addictive!
Of course, if cooking for Passover isn't your thing, come to Beth El for our community 2nd night Seder. Call the office: 301-652-2606 to check for availability. This year it will be lead by Hazzan Matthew Klein. It is sure to be a musical exodus!
Double Chocolate Cookies
3 cups powdered sugar*
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2-4 egg whites
1 cup chocolate chips
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. Sift or whisk sugar, cocoa powder and salt together in a large mixing bowl. Add two egg whites and mix. Consistency should be similar to thick brownie mix. If you need additional egg whites, add one at a time until the correct consistency. I find that 3 egg whites works best, but it can vary. Fold chocolate chips into batter. Spoon batter onto cookie sheets. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes, until cookies inflate slightly and tops crack. Remove cookies from cookie sheet and let cool completely. Makes 24 - 30 cookies.
*Kosher for Passover powdered sugar can be found in kosher markets around town, or, it is easy to make yourself. In a food processor, use the ratio of 1 cup granulated sugar to 1 tablespoon of potato starch. Blend in food processor until mixture resembles powdered sugar.
