Made with only four ingredients, these chewy gluten-free drop cookies take just a few minutes to prepare. Walnuts don't keep well for extended periods at room temperature, so taste them before you begin to make sure they're fresh.

  • 2 1/4 cups walnut halves (about 7 oz/200 g)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 3/4 cups superfine sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder sifted


Remove 18 walnut halves; split each in half and set aside. In food processor, grind remaining walnuts.

In bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form; fold in sugar, cocoa and ground walnuts.

Drop by scant 1 tbsp, about 2 inches (5 cm) apart, onto parchment paper–lined baking sheets; top each with walnut piece.

Bake in 350?F (180?C) oven until set, 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer to racks and let cool completely. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 5 days.)
