Double Chocolate Pecan Cookies - Gluten Free, Dairy Free

As you will know from previous posts, my friend Craig is gluten and dairy intolerant.  Accordingly, my regular Christmas box goodies full of dairy and gluten would not be approriate for him.

After a flick through Martha Stewart's Holiday Cookies (2010), I came across the perfect Christmas cookie recipe for Craig - Double Chocolate Pecan Cookies.  You can find the recipe online here.

 These cookies are made with icing sugar, egg whites, cocoa, pecans (I substituted walnuts) and chopped chocolate.  The cookies are quite large, and are chewy, soft and very chocolatey.  They are great, not just for those with dietary intolerances, but for anyone who loves chocolate. Best of all, they are very simple to make!
