    What am I doing wrong my cookies come out too runny almost like instant pudding? I can't put the batter in a pastry bag.

    Perfect for a mint for after dinner and a nice crunch in place of a cookie. I loved the green color and the colorful sparkles I'd put on top - thanks!

    I made these while I was gestational diabetic and dying for sweets. I used all alternate sugars (Splenda and Stevia Plus) and it was NOT good! I would not recommend doing this, as it gave the meringues a very bitter flavor and after taste. I'm betting if you stick to the original recipe these will taste much better!

    Wonderful, but very addictive. I have made this many times and change flavors for a new taste.

    I used a zip lock bag with the corner cut out to make my pastry bag. It worked and my little breath-mint puffs turned out cute! I used parchment on the cookie sheets instead of greasing them.

    Yummy! These melt in your mouth... we used almond flavoring instead of mint.. tastes great! Easy to make. Thanks so much!
