DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
  • Line non-stick baking sheets with parchment paper or use the Silpat sheets to prevent the cookies from sticking.
  • 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.
  • While beating, add salt, cream of tartar, and vanilla extract.
  • Add the cocoa/sugar mixture, 1 tablespoons at a time, until the egg whites are stiff and glossy.
  • Drop batter by tablespoonfuls onto non-stick baking sheets.
  • 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 (secure with a wooden spoon), and allow cookies to cool in the oven.
  • Remove from oven and store in a tightly covered (airtight) container.
