Given the name Mudslide Cookies because they kind of look like mud when they are being made, these are one of the easiest and best cookies you are going to make and your family is going to fall in love. I have made this cookie off and on for many years, but I never have forgotten how great it is and how simple it is to make…and gluten free. With only one bowl and a short list of ingredients these cookies will be in your oven in no time and ready to enjoy.
How To Make Mudslide Cookies
Made with powdered sugar, cocoa powder, salt, egg whites, vanilla extract, semi sweet chocolate chips and pecans Mudslide Cookies are a one bowl cookie batter and no mixer required. Once all the ingredients are mixed together the cookie batter will be very thick and glossy, but I prefer to let the batter sit for an extra ten minutes to thicken up even more.
Baking Mudslide Cookies
Once the batter is prepare, scoop the batter onto a prepared sheet pan, leaving about three inches in between each cookies because they will spread (slide) to become a large and delicious chocolate cookies. I use two sheet pans and bake six cookies on each pan to be sure they do not run into each other. Mudslide Cookies will bake at 350 degrees F for 11-12 minutes and the cookie will crack and will turn a slightly lighter shade of brown. Once the cookies are baked, remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool completely before removing from the pan. The cookies will be very soft while they are hot but will slightly harden on the outside as they cool off.
Gluten Free and Optional Dairy Free
The best part about these amazing chocolate cookies is they are naturally gluten free. No need for flour to make these decadent mudslide cookies and if you want to make them dairy free, just use a dairy free chocolate chip and you are all set!
