Yummy Candy Cookies

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by two happy children

I found this recipe on allrecipes.com and it was named Martha Washington Cookies. These are so good my 4 yr old calls them candy cookies. They are the best I have had in a long time and they are also gfcf.

Very disappointed - the directions don't even tell you when to add the sugar and vanilla! I tried to beat the eggs to make the peaks, both before adding the sugar and afterwards, and had no luck.
