      I FOLLOWED the recipe and it turned out the way it should-check out photo! Plus it tasted the way my grandma made it: creamy, fluffy, irresistible.

      way too sweet, meringue didnt fluff up like it should, unable to roll it because it fell apart. The egg 'filling' was more like a sweet omelet...yet I followed the recipe very carefully & thoroughly. Sorry.
