Peppermint Fudge Cookies

Two months ago, I made these Flourless Fudge Cookies. I have some candy canes at home, so I decided to crush up a few and add it to the recipe to make GF Peppermint Fudge Cookies. This recipe is AMAZING - crunchy cookie on the outside, chewy and fudgy cookie on the inside - with a hint of peppermint! I think I'm going to have to tell Mike they flopped so I can save them all for myself! :)

·2 ¼ cups powdered sugar
·¼ tsp salt
·1 cup cocoa powder
·2 egg whites
·4 tsp cold water
·2 tsp vanilla extract
·2 candy canes, crushed into fine pieces/dust

Preheat oven to 350˚. Lightly grease two baking sheets. Using a kitchen stand mixer, mix together all ingredients, except candy cane pieces, until well-blended. Add crushed candy canes and mix briefly until they are well dispersed. (The flourless dough will be sticky). Use a greased tablespoon to place cookie dough onto baking sheet in 1 inch balls.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. The cookies should spread out with slightly cracking tops. Remove cookies from oven and let them cool on cookie sheet. Makes 16-24 cookies.
