Gluten Free Cocoa Cookies

IMG_4587These are simple, easy and gluten-free!  My favorite!  These cookies were a big hit with those that ate them. If you like a chewy, sugary cookie, these are for you!  I’ve found other recipes like this online but all of them include nuts and I did mine without nuts.


2 cup powdered sugar

1/4 cup cocoa – use real cocoa powder to be sure it’s gluten-free – not hot cocoa powder

2 large eggs

2 tbs vanilla


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine powdered sugar and cocoa.  Stir to combine.  Add the eggs one at a time then mix in the vanilla.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.  Some recipes don’t require this but I found it made it easier to spoon out the dough, as it is quite liquidy.

Spoon onto prepared cookie sheet, leaving a good inch all around.  I did about 6 to 8 per sheet, depending on the size of the cookie sheet.

Bake about 10 minutes.  If you do multiple batches, reduce the time as your over remains hot. I did my first batch at 10 minutes, second at 8, and the third at 6 minutes.  Each came out perfectly, but if your oven keeps a pretty consistent temp you should be fine with 8 to 10 minutes.

Allow the cookies to cool on the parchment paper then transfer to a rack.  These cookies do puff up and expand and they typically crack, making them look super cool!
