LOOKING for: Meringue type cookies...

Lisa_in_GermanyDecember 12, 2007

I have a lot of egg whites to use up. I want to make some meringue type cookies and some coconut macaroons. Does anybody have some tried and true recipes for me?

I haven't had much luck w/the meringue cookies completely drying. The recipes I've tested, haven't given me the results I had been aiming for.

With that, my question is: Does your recipe allow the meringue cookies dry completely to the center?

Thanks, everyone. I will let you know which one I can try. I would love to make Ginger's, but i can't get candy canes over here.
