Let me first say that I *don't* like meringue cookies...I wanted to make these for a friend who loves them. I was going to get their opinion on the cookies and rate accordingly. Well...I LOVE these. The flavors are incredible together, the outside is a little crisp, the inside chewy and oh so indescribably yummy. Just perfect! I would suggest to anyone using a piping bag to be sure your almonds are REALLY fine (almost ground) or you will inevitably get a piece stuck in the tip. This happened to me and by the time I got it out, the meringue had partially deflated. I have some flat cookies, but I don't care...they still taste so, so, so awesome! Thanks much for posting!
