    2       c            Unsifted powdered sugar
      1/4   c            Cocoa powder (not a mix)
    1                    Jumbo egg white
      1/2   c            Finely ground walnuts
                         - OR pecans
   PREHEAT THE OVEN TO 300F. Beat all the ingredients together at the highest
   mixer speed for about 1 minute, or mix them in a food processor fitted with
   the metal chopping blade for about 30 seconds. The mixture will be about as
   thick as fondant. With a stockinette- covered rolling pin, well-dusted with
   powdered sugar, roll the mixture on a board, also liberally dusted with 10X
   sugar, until it is 1/4-inch thick. With a 1 1/2-inch cutter dipped in 10X
   sugar, cut the meringue into small circles. Reroll the scraps and cut as
   many meringues as possible. Space the meringues about 1 1/2 inches apart on
   baking sheets. The baking sheets should be liberally dusted with flour.
   Bake them uncovered for 15 minutes. Cool the meringues for about 5 minutes
   on the baking sheets; then, with a spatula, carefully loosen them. Transfer
   them to wire racks. When they are cool, store them in airtight containers.
