Meringue Cookies

I love meringue cookies and these turned out better than the store bought ones, in my opinion. They are only 2 main ingredients and they are delicious.

4 egg whites
2 1/4 c. powdered sugar
cocoa or any other flavoring- to taste, if desired.

Heat the oven to 200 degrees. Whip the egg whites till foamy. Sprinkle in the sugar very slowly and add the flavoring, if desired, as you whip the eggs. When the mix is stiff transfer to a bag and pipe out onto a buttered and floured baking sheet. Bake for 3 hours leaving a wooden spoon in the door, keeping it slightly ajar. Let cool completely.
