Yummy! So nice, they are rich, your lovely nature is the essence of this cookie. We all enjoyed it and I forgot for once that I'm trying to slim down:) These cookies have been nicknamed "Magical Cookies" by me, because of the way they bake in a switched-off oven, loved the concept. Oh I must mention that 8 hrs. after these were put in the oven and were done, they were quite soft, so in order to make them a little harder, I placed them in the freezer and they were a delicacy this evening. Thank You so much, love u!

These cookies are great. I had no idea what to expect but they are simple to make and really really good. We went to a party last night and I took them along. They were gone in no time. My grandchildred especially liked them.

I have been all over the internet and in cookbooks every where looking for this exact recipe.My grand mother used to make these every christmas and she passed away, in 2001 at the age of 97, before I had a chance to get the recipe from her.So thank you thank you thank you.You don't know how much this means to me to be able to make these again.She made chocolate ones too now I'm not sure of the measurements for the coco powder though the rest of the recipe stays the same.

Several things make these cookies a 5-star recipe! And not because they are 'gourmet', either! First are the memories of my grandmother (who didn't really cook) making these at Christmas. However, not only are the memories sweet, but I hate throwing away egg whites when I've made a recipe that only uses the yolks, so these cookies come to the rescue. I had never added nuts until this year, and they were a good addition, but I think I like them best with just chocolate chips (mini-chips being the favorite). They are also so very easy - just don't preheat your oven the next morning and forget they are in there!! (Been there, done that!) Now I put a little post-it note over the 'on' button for my oven as a reminder. Thanks for a reminder of an old family favorite.

When I was a little girl, an old lady at my church always used to make these for me with M&Ms inside. It has taken me forever to track this recipe down! We called them 'Forget-me-nots'. Thank you for posting it :)

Any oldie, but goodie and so irresistible. Never can I just eat one. Okay, I'll be honest...more like ten in one sitting. Great for a Christmas cookie exchange, too. We'll all go on diets after Christmas, right?

Great cookie if you like meringue. Made several batches but must admit that I forgot to turn off the oven one time....not good! This one is a keeper...so easy and dee-licious.
