Black Friday Cookies

I couldn’t resist. These cookies came out so ooey, gooey, brownie-like and dark chocolate… that I simply had to dub them as Black Friday Cookies. For those not in-the-know, Black Friday is the name Americans give to the day after Thanksgiving– which happens to be our biggest shopping day of the year. I personally wouldn’t go anywhere near the mall on Black Friday if you paid me, but a zillion other people eagerly arrive at 5am to battle the crowds and long lines… all for a chance to get some good bargains. I figure these people might need some good cookies to come home to- these Flourless Chocolate Cookies.

These are adapted from Francois Payard, the chocolate expert. They may be flourless, which also makes them gluten free, but if you’re at all a fan of chewy brownies… you’ll likely enjoy these immensely.

They’re not a sturdy cookie -instead, they’re rather light and delicate. But one bite into them and you’ll be delightfully surprised at the rich chocolate flavor and the abundance of fudginess.

Deconstructed :)

Enjoy Black Friday!  And whether you’re out there in the wild world of shopping or enjoying the peace and quiet of home, I hope you’ll have the opportunity to try out these cookies.

    After what seems months of hearing nothing but pumpkin this and pumpkin that; I am now REALLY craving chocolate and I love the notion of flourless cookies.

    Once I finish putting everything away from yesterday these cookies sound like an easy and satisfying project for today!

    What a great name. These look fabulous. But I have a question. What is the white stuff in the first picture? A dip of some sort?

    Mmm, these truly are a great cookie for Black Friday, Lori! And they look likie brownie/cookie heaven. I actually posted a Black Friday cookie of my own, but mine were more of a seasonal cookie. :)

    These sound great!

    I’ve been wanting a soft chocolate cookie but didn’t find a recipe that said, “MAKE ME NOW!” until now. ;)

    These are FAR MORE of a good idea, than being out there getting trampled on in the malls!! The dense chocolate kick and sheen on these babies are making me crave them oh-so-badly right now.

    No, I do not. But you can search for an online recipe calculator to help you figure out the nutritional information. Here’s a good one:
