This was one of the recipes that I had in mind when I finally purchased an electric hand mixer. Needless to say, I felt that this was truly a letdown. I had high hopes for this recipe, what with all the envisions of light melt-in-your mouth cookies worth only 10 calories! The pictures on the website were so promising!
On my first try, I found that my egg whites weren't reaching the soft peak stage, much less the stiff peak stage. I decided to do a redo, but only this time I wasn't going to whisk the cocoa in. Instead, I folded the cocoa into the egg whites after they had been whipped.
After baking them for an hour, I was shocked to discover that my lovely meringue cookies had burnt! This is one recipe that definitely has some kinks that need to be worked out.
it was terrible!!! i was really looking forward to them and after about 45 min the were burnt!!!
