Top Review by ChefLee

Good recipe!! I used my copper bowl for the egg whites and was pleased with how easy this dough came together! I started smelling the cookies at about 6 minutes and so I took them out and they were lightly browned. I baked my next batch for 5 minutes and they came out perfectly! You definitely need a pastry bag and tip for this because the mix is very gooey and difficult to handle any other way. The cookies turn out light, airy, crisp, and delicious!! Thanks for the recipe!
