My mother used to make these all the time growing up (the full sugar version). Since my husband and I tend to eat extremely healthy, it was great to have another cookie to add to my arsenal that is not loaded with shortening, butter, and sugar!!! Thanks 5 stars

I made a batch yesterday and messed them up so I didn't write a review...they turned out pretty good though, except they were like muffins instead of cookies haha. Now my new batch are in the oven and I licked the spoon, cleaned the bowl and even the egg-beaters. I LOVE them, I'd definitely make them again! I remember eating the ones from IGA when I was little, and I can proudly say these taste just as good, if not better. Two thumbs up from the Weir family! 5 stars

I made these for my very picky mother in law and she really loved them, and went on and on about how great they were....I had never had meringue cookies and these are a keeper. Thank you for sharing. 5 stars

Would make this again.
i dont get it.
we are only using egg whites, splenda, vanilla and how is the result not watery and runny? there is no ingredient to thicken it up..

please help as i would like to make these

RESPONSE: They are a traditional meringue cookie. You beat them into meringue and then they cook for a long time at a slow temperature and become crispy. See the Wikipedia article on meringues: Meringue.
