Earlier this week, I made the cookie to end all cookies: flourless chocolate-walnut cookies (recipe compliments of François Payard). Can I just say? You MUST try them. On top of the fact they contain just six ingredients, are gluten-free and are practically fool-proof, these sweet treats have the most amazing fudgy flavor, and the entire cookie has the consistency of brownie crust.
What I really love is that these cookies are chock full of walnuts. We’ve written here before about how darn good walnuts are for you; now a recent report presented at the national meeting of the American Chemical Society revealed that of all nuts, walnuts are richest and highest quality source of antioxidants. Many Svelte readers have commented that walnuts can have a bitter flavor, but these flourless chocolate-walnut cookies bring out the walnuts’ sweet nutty flavor and cover all traces of unpleasantness.
You can find the recipe here. Try it and tell me what you think.
