This is a different recipe, fun to make and very interesting results. But not very popular in my household. Sorry, but thanks for posting!

Really cool recipe and delicious!!!!! These are light, crisp, chewy, gooey, and nutty!!! I was intrigued by the name of these cookies and tried to find out why they were called this. I did find the Toledo Mud Hens and some other ball teams named after this duck-like bird with a blackish head and neck. In the spirit of the mud hen colors, I used black walnuts which I also love the vintage flavor of. (My grandma always made black walnut cake and she had a big old black walnut tree in her back yard.) Black walnuts went wonderfully with the sweetness of the brown sugar meringue! I had also recently treated myself to a new unlined copper bowl to beat egg whites in and this was the first recipe that I used to break that in on and it really worked great and I had nice stiff peaks on my egg whites!! This is a wonderful and fun recipe that delivers great flavor and texture!!! Thanks so much for posting!!!
