Flourless Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

I'll be the first to admit that baking is an art and sometimes you have bad days and bad paintings. Today is a van Gogh. These cookies are a masterpiece that can only be described by Booringue. Let me explain. Instead of calling these cookies Flourless Double Chocolate Chip Cookies, I thought it'd be fun to boost the creativity to match the art of these cookies.

The instant you bite into one of these cookies, you get a glimpse of the meringue-like texture of the outside, crunchy and light. Dig a little deeper into your bite and you've got a moist and gooey center reminiscent of a brownie hot out of the oven. Lastly, these delights are cookies, so that's that. You must make these cookies and fast! … [Read more...]
