Kid-Friendly Chocolate Cut-Out Cookies — The Skinny Fork by Gordon Ramsay

Kid-Friendly Chocolate Cut-Out Cookies — The Skinny Fork



Without further adieu, below is what my 9 year old mini-me wrote up about her cookies!

I should note too, that she also took the pictures of mixing up the batter.

Hi, this is the Skinny Fork’s daughter, Lily! So, this is basically how my mother and I made Chocolate Cookie Cut-Outs. To make them a tad bit healthier, we used natural sugar, whole wheat white flour instead of regular flour, and we also used dark cocoa powder instead of plain. Those are pretty much all the ingredients we replaced. So, this is pretty much an easy recipe for kids. And another thing we did to make these cookies was chill them for a long time, and if you don’t chill them they would get spread out and not look as good. Next time you and your kids are bored together, try this recipe! Anyways, the Little Fork is out!

Chocolate Chip Cloud Cookies – Southern Plate by Gordon Ramsay

Chocolate Chip Cloud Cookies


Chocolate Chip Cloud Cookies

No matter how much I love cooking, there is always a special thrill when I make something that I know has one of my kids or auntlings are going to get excited about. That’s why I love these cloud cookies so much :). They got their name from my nephew, Austin, over fifteen years ago. I’ve always been a fan of meringue cookies and I whipped up a batch when Austin was over at my house and decided to stir some chocolate chips into them before baking. Austin waited patiently while they cooked and then took one bite and declared them just like clouds – with the added bonus of chocolate chips!

So if you want to be the cool aunt/mama/grandmama/daddy/uncle who knows how to bake chocolate chips into clouds…I got ya covered today!

Chocolate Chip Cloud Cookies

You’ll need: Chocolate Chips, two eggs, sugar, Cream of Tartar, a bit of salt, and some sprinkles if you’d like to add a little sparkle to your clouds...I mean cookies.

Chocolate Chip Cloud Cookies

Crack your eggs and separate the whites from the yolk. Add in a pinch of cream of tartar and your salt.

There are all sorts of gadgets that do this but I just use my hands. Usually, I crack the egg and just gently tilt it until the white pours off, saving the yolk in the shell. You can also pour the entire egg into your hand and spread your fingers slightly to allow just the white to slide through while the yolk remains.

Or you can get one of those gadgeterators that lets you pour the egg into it and the white comes out of little spout on the bottom.

Whichever way you go, make sure you don’t get any of the yolk (the dark orange part) in this because our meringue won’t fluff up if we have yolk in it.

Chocolate Chip Cloud Cookies Making Meringues

Beat your egg whites until soft peaks form.

Okay so what this means is that you need to beat them on high with an electric mixer for a few minutes. They will start out getting frothy and then begin to get foamy, and eventually turn white like this. As you keep on beating, they will start to hold their shape a bit, meaning you’ll see ripples remain in them where the beater has been.

Stop your mixer and pull your beaters up. Where your beaters came out of the egg whites a point will come up.  If that droops back down again (kinda like the top of a dairy queen ice cream cone), you have soft peaks.

Chocolate Chip Cloud Cookies

Add in your sugar and beat it some more, unit the sugar is well incorporated.

Chocolate Chip Cloud Cookies Stiff Peaks

It will get thick and glossy like divinity.

Oh my, I need to do a post on how to make divinity, don’t I? Oooh Mama has a great recipe for it…

Scooping Out Chocolate Chip Cloud Cookies

Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

Place spoonfuls onto the greased baking sheet.

I do about a well rounded teaspoon…or whatever size I’m in the mood for 🙂

A lot of my cooking is centered around my mood. Good thing I try to pick good moods out of the bucket each morning!

Allow your clouds to cool completely and then store them in an airtight container, or just hand them to the kids in your life and watch them disappear!
