6 egg whites
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup, plus 1 tsp. unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
In a small bowl, combine the 1/4 cup cocoa and sugar together; set aside.
In a large bowl using your electric mixer, beat egg whites until foamy/frothy. While beating to the frothy stage, add salt, cream of tartar, and vanilla extract. After reaching the frothy stage, add 1/4 cup of the cocoa and sugar 1-2 tablespoons at a time while continuing beating until the egg whites are stiff and glossy.
Drop batter by tablespoonfuls onto baking sheets (1-inch apart). In a small bowl, combine the remaining 1 teaspoon cocoa and cinnamon. Using a sieve or a sifter, sprinkle mixture over the non-baked cookies.
Bake 90 minutes; turn off the oven, open the door slightly, and allow cookies to cool in the oven. Remove from oven and store in and airtight container.
Makes 50 cookies.
Number of Servings: 50
