4 large egg whites, at room temperature
1 teaspoon gluten free vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 325° F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Combine powdered sugar, baking cocoa, coffee granules and salt in large bowl; stir in morsels. Add egg whites and vanilla extract; stir until combined.

Drop by level tablespoon 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheet. 

Bake for 13 to 15 minutes or until tops are cracked and shiny and edges are firm. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Dust with additional powdered sugar, if desired.

Cook’s Tip: for Chocolate Fudge Coconut Crinkle Cookies, eliminate instant coffee and stir in 3/4 cup shredded sweetened coconut with the morsels.
