These cookies are absolutely delicious and so easy to make. However do remember to peak the egg whites to really stiff peaks (about 10 minutes to get to that stage) and if you try to make these on a very humid day the egg whites might not set up as well. Humidity tends to make the egg whites fall. Also cool the chocolate before adding it to the egg white mixture as the heat may make the egg whites fall while cooking. Read More

These cookies were just plain good. Nothing to write home about. Although if I make them again I would leave them in the oven for only about 8-9 minutes. At 10 minutes they were a little dry and dark at the bottom of the cookie. Read More

I use to make these cookies many years ago then lost the recipe. Thanks to you I can make them again. I made them at Christmas time and my whole family was delighted. They melt in your mouth. Very delicate handle with care. Rosemary Read More

I too lost this recipe and was thrilled to find it. They are out of this world. For those of you who had runny cookies you may not have beaten the egg whites enough. Just a thought. Melt in your mouth cookies!! Read More

These cookies were a disappointment. They taste OK but they were runny and they all spread together. I thoroughly greased the pan but I had to resort to scraping the cookies off with a fork. Read More
