Very Nutty Chocolate Cookies (No Butter Needed!)

Thanks to my friends who kept posting dessert pictures on Fabebook,
Now that my unstoppable cravings for sweet treats just keeps pouring in,
But what can I do?
I have no more butter left...
Is there something chocolaty that can be made without butter?

Luckily, I've got one here!
Very nutty chocolate cookies -

Ingredients (for about a dozen)?

1/4 cup of ground pistachio
1/4 cup of ground walnut
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
5 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa power
1 egg white
Some white chocolate and heavy whipping cream (optional)


These are the main ingredients of the day - pistachio and walnut -

Ground the nuts into very tiny pieces with a food processor,
Please note here, I mean tiny pieces, not fine powder, 
That way you can get more nutty bites from the cookies.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line the parchment paper on the baking sheet.

With a mixer, add in ground nuts, sugar, and cocoa power till fully blended,
Once done, slowly pour in the egg white while the mixing is still on low speed,
Mix till glossy, 
It won't take that long, definitely less than 1 minute -

Use a piping bag or just pour the mixture into a Ziploc and cut a 1~2 inch hole at the tip,
That's my temporary piping bag!

Pipe the mixture into about a dozen rectangular shapes, 
Into the oven for 5 to 10 minutes,
Consider 10 minutes extreme already, 
Remember, the longer you bake, the chewier the cookies will get!

The white part?
If you're greedy like me, 
You can melt the chocolate and cream with a double broiler,
Just dip the cooled cookies into the mixture and let it set before serving.

Now I have my own dessert pictures to post on Facebook!

  1. I am definitely greedy but I'm too lazy to finish off with the chocolate touch. I wonder if I can make this without a mixer? Hmmmm....

  2. To Tigerfish~
    I think so, it's not that hard to mix with the ingredients I listed. However, for sure it requires some hand power though!
