WOW! I was amazed at the flavor and how simple they were to make! I now have a good recipe that uses just egg whites. I never know what to do with them after making homemade noodles. I do suggest letting the cookies cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before removing them because the bottoms seem to fall out of them. I will make again! Read More

The flavor of these cookies is excellent however when baked at 275 as indicated in the recipe they become thin and spead out and are not attractive. I baked the first pan as directed and was very disappointed. The next two pans I increased the heat to 350 and the results were much better. Whatever you do don't forget to spray the pan!:-) Read More

This is the perfect recipe for when you're at someone else's house for the holidays... it doesn't use a bunch of flour which is something people only keep if they bake a lot. Warning: the cookies get gooey and flat if there's not enough chunky stuff inside. I used chopped pecans and chocolate chips. Also I took the other reviewer's advice and set my oven to 350. They're done before they look done I took them out when the edges were getting brown. Liberally grease your pan a light coating won't do the trick. Not a pretty cookie but very very yummy and economical! Read More

These cookies were very tasty but mine came out extremely flat. I do not know why but I will try to make them again and see how it goes a second time. I whipped until the eggs were stiff but the cookie mix still ran on when put on the pan. Good but I won't make a third time if they run again. Read More

These cookies are very tasty and the centers are chewy. I followed the recipe but chopped my nuts pretty fine. I also cooked them at 350 for 13 minutes. They did spread pretty thin but I like my cookies like that. I will be making more of these for Christmas. Read More
