      If I could give this more than 5 stars I definitely would. They are SO good and easy. Nice and light too. This will be made often in our house! Instead of spooning the meringues onto the parchment paper, I put it in a piping bag and piped them out. I used leftover candy canes for the peppermints since I always seem to have a lot of them after Christmas. I was impressed with how pepperminty these were with just the candy inside and no extract. Very flavorful. Thanks for the great recipe! Made for Photo Tag.

      WOW - an lovely and beautiful cookie that whips up in no time. Actually I can't take much credit because I was sous chef to my 10 year old daughter making them. They will be on our Christmas cookie list next year for sure.
