RECIPE: Cinnamon Cocoa Meringue Cookies

Have you purchased your copy of my new eCookbook Sweet Creations Volume 1 "Basic Southern Cakes"?

It's only $2.99!

I love little sweet cookies.  

I really love little sweet cookies that are low calorie.

And I really, really love little sweet cookies that are low calorie and chocolatey!

These are so yummy!!!

Cinnamon Cocoa Meringue Cookies
4 egg whites
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Beat egg whites and cream of tartar

Beat until soft peaks form.

Add the sugar, cocoa powder and cinnamon 

and beat until stiff peaks form.

Pipe or drop onto a parchment or tin foil lined baking sheet (if you use tin foil, lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray)

Bake at 200 degrees F for 2 hours and then turn off the oven and allow to sit overnight in the oven.

The next morning, remove from baking sheet and enjoy!

These are so yummy!!!  I think next time I'll reduce the cinnamon to 1/4 teaspoon because it tasted a little too cinnamon--y for me. 

Makes about 16 cookies.  Each cookie is 18 calories, 0 gr fat, 3.4 gr carb, 1.1 gr protein.

They bake for 2 hours? Really? Sounds really interesting. Maybe I'll make them before meeting tonight and have my brother turn off the oven.
