I needed a bunch of these so I doubled the recipe. I used 1 1/2 cups sugar because what was put in the recipe was not enough. Other that I changed nothing else. Really good cookie!!!!! Thank you!!!! Read More

what's wrong with these? they sounded so promising i think the amount of sugar is off now that i look at other meringue recipes. sugar helps stiffen the egg whites and give them that shiny look. maybe they would have held their shape better Read More

This was a fabulous treat! I used Instant Jamaican Coffee as opposed to regular and I piped (for added height) the cookies onto my pan before I tossed them in the oven and they had a fabulous texture when they finished. Crispy on the outside & tender and chewy on the inside. They melted in your mouth and the guests I served them to had nothing but rave reviews for them. This is definitely going to be added to my holiday fav list! Read More

Um this didn't turn out at ALL like a meringue...but it still tasted fine. I'm not sure what went wrong I followed the directions exactly and I mixed the ingredients for an hour (45 minutes by hand 15 with an automatic mixer) but stiff peaks NEVER formed. So as a result the meringues were flat and airy like strange cookies. Maybe because I'm at a high altitude (7500 feet) but I wasn't sure how to adjust. Still they tasted good. Read More

This is my first meringue cookie so I am not sure how it is supposed to taste. I doubled the recipe used 1 T. of the cocoa and instead used 1 T. instant cappacino mix toffee flavor. Also I didn't use any sugar but four packets of artificial sweetener instead. The cookies were flat airy light and did melt in your mouth. I would probably up the sugar next time while keeping everything else I changed the same. I would make them again. I have been dieting and these are great for a nice chocolate treat. I ate them with a little light whipped cream and they were great! Read More

Tasted good even though they came out flat. I've made meringues many times with other recipes and haven't had them flop before. Oh well they made good mocha thin crisps! Read More
