Intensely chocolaty--with a hint of salt from the macadamia nuts--these cookies are also gluten-free.


  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar

  • ¾ cup Dutch-process cocoa powder

  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt

  • 5 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped

  • 1 ½ cups chopped salted macadamia nuts

  • 4 large egg whites, room temperature


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Whisk together confectioners' sugar, cocoa, and salt. Stir in chocolate and nuts. Add egg whites; stir until just incorporated.

  2. Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls, 3 inches apart, onto 2 parchment-lined rimmed baking sheets. Bake until cookie tops are dry and crackled, 22 to 25 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Transfer baking sheets to wire racks; let cookies cool completely.
