Gottlieb's Chocolate Chewy Recipe

This is such a great cookie...a cookie from my childhood! This is from a bakery in Savannah, Georgia that is now closed. It was started, I think, in the 1920's and closed in the late 1990's. It was a wonderful Jewish bakery with it's claim to fame being the Chocolate Chewy! They were so delicious and such a treat. When the bakery closed everyone was so the Chocolate Chewy would be gone forever! But I just had this recipe sent to me today and though I would share it with you!! Once you try them you will be hooked!! Yummy!

Gottlieb's Chocolate Chewy
12 oz powered sugar
1 1/4 oz cocoa
2 Tbsp all purpose flour
3 egg whites
8 oz chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 300. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper. Place sugar, cocoa and flour in mixer bowl and beat until well blended. Beat in egg whites, 1 at a time, scraping bowl as necessary. Beat at high speed for 1 minute. Beat in pecans.
Drop by tablespoon onto sheets, leaving 2 inches between cookies for spreading. Bake 1 sheet at a time for 15 minutes, turning sheet around halfway through baking time. Remove from oven; cool on paper. Place cookies on paper in freezer, freeze for 1 hour.
Remove from freezer, peel paper off cookies. Store in an airtight container. These don't keep very long, so eat quickly - as if that is a problem!
Make 2 dozen.
