Folks might want to add a dash of salt (it calls for it in my original recipe.) Recipe should make around 3 1/2 dozen. (My recipe calls for only 1 egg white and 1 cup light brown sugar...but the recipe is basically the same so no need to add a new one. One STRONG suggestion: Do not make these on rainy or very humid days. The will be sticky if you do.
