    Mirj's Note:

    Delicate and delicious. The long cooking time is for leaving the meringues in the turned-off oven overnight.

      These were good: very intense and orangy. Less crispy and more chewy than my usual meringues (which aren't left in the oven overnight). Easy to make. I didn't use the optional chocolate chips or nuts, but either one would probably have been a nice addition. I got 37 meringues out of this recipe. A nice, light, fatfree "cookie"!

      These turned out very nice- they almost tasted like fruit loops. I didn't have any cream of tarter so I used baking soda instead, and it worked well. The overnight baking time was really nice too.
