    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.

Expert 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).
