From a Parade-type newspaper insert:

Mix 1 3/4 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa, 2 tsp. cornstarch, 1/4 tsp. salt, 2 egg whites (not beaten). Should be thick enough to form balls; if not, add more sugar and/or cocoa. (I forgot the cornstarch, but they were still very, very good. I wound up using 2 1/4 cups powdered sugar.) Stir in 1 cup nuts. Form into 15 balls, place on parchment paper, and bake 16-19 minutes in a 300 oven until crackly and shiny. Cool completely. I had to bake a little longer before they were crackly. They have a sort of crisp-meringue outside, and a soft, chewy inside, and are made with things I always have.

That sounds so yummy... I would probably eliminate the corn starch, also because I try to stay away from corn.

a friend cut this recipe out of the paper for me and i can't wait to try...

do you think it would work without the nuts?

I think it would work. I am finding myself wondering if there was something else I could put in there.....mini marshmallows maybe, but they would probably melt all over.

Made these last night with peanuts. Yum! I want to try them with PB chips (if gluten-free) or pieces of candy cane. Sent a couple with my hub to my son at Boy Scout camp. Will see if they pass the teenage test. :P

These Peanut butter cookies have passed the teenager test. They are an Emeril recipe that was on Good Morning America. Good without the choclate chips, too. Let's see if this link will work. My link http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/recipePrint?od=87140&format=fullpage

doesn't work:

Peanut Butter + Chocolate = A Tasty Cookie

From the Kitchen of Emeril Lagasse

Servings: Over 8

Difficulty: Easy

Cook Time: 1-30 min

"These are by far the easiest and best-tasting peanut butter

cookies you will ever make. A perfect recipe for kids -- no

fuss, no muss."

-Emeril Lagasse

Ingredients

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1 large egg, beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Total: 15 minutes

1. Position two oven racks in the center of the oven and preheat

the oven to 350°F.

2. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, and stir with a wooden

spoon until smooth.

3. Divide the dough into 24 portions, about 1 heaping tablespoon

each. Roll each portion between your hands to form a smooth ball.

Place the balls of dough on ungreased cookie sheets, spacing them

1 inch apart. You should get about 12 cookies per sheet. Using

a fork, press on the dough in two directions to form a crosshatch

pattern.

4. Bake the cookies, rotating the sheets between oven racks and

turning them back to front midway, until the cookies are puffed

and lightly golden, about 10 minutes. Remove the baking sheets

from the oven and let the cookies cool on the sheets. Then remove

them with a metal spatula.

Makes about 24 cookies

    • Lex_, Again I am afraid Ennis_Tx is right here. Ennis_tx eats right and is eating all the right things and still has to take/supplement with Magnesium. The magnesium is a clue?  We need magnesium to make energy. I like to say as chlorophyll is to photosynthesis for the plant so is Magnesium for/to the Animal(s). Meaning we will run down without it. It is said "we waste away without enough Magnesium" Dr. Carolyn Dean wrote the book "The Magnesium Miracle" because people genuinely feel terrific when they take it. they are able to make energy again and function properly but the question remains  why? are we low in it the first place if we need it so much. Iron plays the same role in the blood/respiration but people still get IDA. It turns out low stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and Iron. see this link about the role of gastric acid in Iron absorption. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7286584/ How do we know this.  . . well it is has been studied and proven. look no further than the FDA box warning on PPI's entitled "FDA Drug Safety Communication: Low magnesium levels can be associated with long-term use of Proton Pump Inhibitor drugs (PPIs)" https://www.fda.gov/drugs/drugsafety/ucm245011.htm now this takes about 6 months of use to become low in magnesium but being low in stomach acid limits our ability to absorb Magnesium and why many people have to take it at 2x to 3x the RDA to get the desired effect. In fact the FDA says only stopping PPI's will reverses this condition.  Obviously  taking higher amount of Magnesium can help alleviate some of these symptom's but only raising the stomach acid will completely alleviate the condition. quoting "Although both patients' hypomagnesemia partially resolved with intravenous replacement, in both cases discontinuation of PPI treatment was necessary to stop ongoing symptoms and to stop magnesium loss." Hypomagnesimia is critically low Magnesiums akin to IDA. here is a thread about IDA and why this is so . . .  low stomach acid leads to low Iron levels. I think it will help explain why Celiac's often have to take Magnesium to help with their chronic fatigue symptom's. I hope this is helpful but when I helped my stomach acid levels my Magnesium begin to be better absorbed from the food I was eating. Nuts are good Magnesium sources especially Cashews and Almonds. So is chocolate hence Ennix_tx cocoa nibs etc. . . ***** this is not medical advice but I know taking Magnesium Citrate helped my energy levels. posterboy by the grace of God, 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things”        
    • Lots of people are diagnosed after 50 according to this https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3227015/  
    • Smaller meals throughout the day should help. I had the same problem but if it keeps up you may need to see the doctor again and get surgery. Anti-acids may help out too. It's been about 10 years since I had mine. Good luck.
    • Nobody posted anything on my profile that I'm aware of but it wouldn't let me get into it. My email got hacked though right around the same time so I just figured it was connected. I'm not exactly Y2K ready. This is the first computer I ever bought and I still have a flip phone. Maybe it's not connected. Don't really know.
