These came out pretty good - I expected them to be like meringues, and, in the end, they were. However, some more information as to how they should turn out would have been helpful. I wasn't real sure if they should brown or not, for example, but at 350 degrees, they started browning rapidly. I lowered the heat and baked them much longer than indicated. When warm they tasted like roasted marshmallows. Thank you for an interesting experience.
