1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 cups pecans, ground coarsely in food processor
7 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1/4 tsp. salt
2 extra large egg whites, slightly beaten*
1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar,
pecans, cocoa, and salt. Add egg whites and vanilla and stir until mixture is
combined well. Spoon onto lightly oiled foil-lined sheets (or unbuttered
parchment) and bake 12 - 15 minutes or until the tops appear dry and light in
color. Let cool and remove from cookie sheet. Makes about 24 cookies.
*Be sure and use extra large egg whites - I've tried large and cookies don't
turn out as good.
