Have a chocolate craving? Not after this you won't....

So who has NOT heard of the Neiman Marcus cookie? Well thanks to relishmag's Tamar Haspel and to Rowena for giving me the clipping, here is one better. Eat your heart out ya'll!

Chewy Flour less Chocolate Cookies

1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup Dutch process cocoa
2 tsp cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 egg whites
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans or walnuts, toasted ( I am NOT a fan of either, so here is where i changed the recipe I used 1 1/2 cups of toasted sliced mm I cannot describe the wonderfulness that it was.)

Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit

Mix together sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Gradually add egg whites, stirring with a spoon until the mix forms a dough. It should be thick enough to form into balls, if not add more powdered sugar and cocoa. Add nuts, mix well.

Form dough into 15 balls. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake 16 to 19 minutes, until glossy and crackled. Cool completely....though it will be very hard to resist snagging one while me... oh and your going to want like a full half gallon of milk to go with these. :)
