Five simple ingredients are all that is needed to make these star-studded cookies.

Ingredients

3
egg whites
1/2
teaspoon cream of tartar
2/3
cup sugar
2
tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon unsweetened baking cocoa
About 1/3 cup ground walnuts

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 275º F. Line cookie sheet with aluminum foil or cooking parchment paper.
  • 2 In medium bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar with electric mixer on medium speed until foamy. Beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time; continue beating until stiff and glossy. Do not underbeat. Fold in cocoa. (Batter will not be mixed completely; there will be some streaks of cocoa.)
  • 3 Place meringue in decorating bag fitted with large star tip (#4). Pipe 1 1/4-inch stars onto cookie sheet. Sprinkle lightly with walnuts; brush excess nuts from cookie sheet.
  • 4 Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until outside is crisp and dry (meringues will be soft inside). Cool 5 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Store in airtight container.
Tips  

Egg whites provide the protein from eggs but don't contain the cholesterol found in egg yolks. That's good news for your heart.

Anyone with allergies to wheat will be grateful to have this recipe. Not only are they yummy little cookies, they are wonderfully wheat-free (and low-calorie, too).
