Would make this again.
I've made theis recipe about 20 times, and 20% of the time it fails to get stiff. I've tried isolating the variables and here's what I think is the problem....If egg yolk gets in, it doesn't get stiff. If anyone else has success when egg yolk gets in, please do tell. 5 stars

Wonderful cookie. I make them every year and change it just a little bit. This year I added pieces of white chocolate and peppermint and it was wonderful. My favorite so far this year! 5 stars

This recipe makes 3-4 dozen cookies about the size of a 50 cent piece. They were a great hit with my daughter's Sunday school class! 5 stars

I tried making this twice. It was my first time ever working with egg whites, let alone trying to make meringue. The first batch I didn't beat long enough because I didn't know what the author of the recipe considered "stiff" so it turned out too liquidy and I had to toss it. The second time I made it I broke out my hand mixer and set it to "Whip" and whipped the egg whites and salt until it was fluffy (which would be a better word to use instead of 'stiff' I think)
and then I separated it into 3 bowls so I could have a variety of colorful cookies, in one bowl I put one drop of red to make pink cookies, in another bowl I put two drops of green to make green cookies and in the third bowl I put four drops of blue - because I wanted it to be a slightly darker shade of blue cookies... Anywho, the blue one came out looking/ tasting like crap. They were too thin and crispy; the green ones were slightly better, and the pink ones were just alright. So needless to say I think this recipe could be less vague in certain areas, so that even a dumby like me can get it right.. I will make these again with out any food coloring and see if they turn out better.

Using pasturized egg whites does not work well because the pasturization process denatures (breaks down the protiens) in the eggwhites. In point of fact most of the pasturized eggwhite cartons that we found said that they would not make a merange. You can whip all you want but all you will get is a liquid. The cookies themeselves are excellant, however temperatures of over 175-200 degrees for an hour or more will kill most bacteria in mixtures as thin as eggwhites, whle it only takes a temperature of about 150 to denature the protiens. A turkey or a chicken cooked at that temperature for such a short time will not kill bacteria because of the thickness of the meat. Eggwhites on the other hand yes. Adam Timmons BA Chem. 2 stars
