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.

MethodRemove 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.)
