Recipe by Myrna 2

Suppose to be the real thing from France. I have'nt made these, as I'm stuck on Nurse Di's. Her's is "melt in your mouth heaven". Anyway some-body try these and let me know if they are worth the time. Thanks.

Way, way too much sugar. I was concerned when I saw it because I always make these with 1/2 cup per two egg whites. But I thought it must make a difference being powdered sugar. It was like eating sugar cubes right from the box. If you make it wanting to see how it works with powdered sugar, I'd just use the traditional 1/2 cup to every 2 whites. Me...I'm sticking with the traditional recipe.
