Made really nice, light kisses. I left them in the oven over night and they were almost perfect in the morning. There was some crystallised sugar on some of them??
Wonderful little treats! I just got a kitchenaid standing mixer for my wedding and had to try it out!! LOVE IT and this was a perfect recipe! Mine didn't get cripy but I used 1/4 sugar and 1/4 splenda...still delish! Thanks!
What a great easy recipe. I added a little flavor to them as well. In the first batch I used a teaspoon of vanilla then some yellow food coloring to help it get back to a more "white" color and it turned out really well. The second time I used a tsp of almond extract. What lovely treats! But dangerous for I wanted to eat the entire pan! LOL. Great recipe and a new fave in my house.
