oh YUM! The kiddos and I love meringue cookies, so choosing this recipe was a no brainer. It comes together easily and is done and in the oven, in no time. The only modifications I made was to add 1/2 t of vanilla and 1 1/2 t of espresso powder cuz I love the coffee & chocolate combo of flavors. So fun and so yummy! Thanks MizzNezz.

had an excess of egg whites and tried these. They were very good. Didn't change the recipe one bit. And I used walnuts. Thank you for this wonderful recipe.

I made these for a girlfriend who mentioned her mother used to make meringue cookies. She loved these and said they tasted just like old times. These are also fairly low in fat.
