These taste good. The hint of almond flavor was nice. Despite about 12 minutes of beating until stiff peaks formed, the meringue-like cookies spread out quite a bit and were a little gummy/sticky. Not sure if that's what they were supposed to be like.

Not bad tasting, just seemed more like candy to me.

Sorry, but I had trouble with recipe. After adding the honey, sugar etc I couldn't get the egg whites to form the very stiff peaks. It just didn't work out for me.
