Flourless Double Chocolate Pecan Cookies- Gluten and wheat free

I have a bunch of friends who have either a wheat allergy or celiac disease. If you have ever tried to live this lifestyle, you will find that EVERYTHING has wheat and you really have to search for good recipes! So, I have found some great WHEAT FREE recipes for them and you. Even if you don't have these concerns, TRY these! They are wonderful and oh sooo yummy! I thought I would start with a very chocolate goodie! ENJOY!
3 cups confectioners' sugar
3/4 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder (spooned and leveled)
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
5 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans (or other type of nut)
4 large egg whites, room temperature

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, cocoa, and salt. Stir in chocolate and pecans. Add egg whites and stir just until incorporated (do not overmix).
Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls, 3 inches apart, onto two parchment-lined rimmed baking sheets. Bake until cookie tops are dry and crackled, about 25 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Transfer sheets to wire racks and let cookies cool.
