I loved these! I did have a little operator error in that my oven wasn't quite high enough when I put the cookies in originally. So, in the morning, they were still a little gummy when I took them out. I turned the oven back on to 350, put them in and turned it off, and went to church. When I came home they were perfect! U left out the pecans and was a tad generous with the mini chocolate chips. These were a great crispy meringue cookie that I didn't need to babysit. I think this will be one I make frequently before I go to bed to put in lunches. Particularly since I can use my stand mixer and it does all the work for me. Thanks!
