So how did my meringue cookies turn out?  Well… nom nom!

…om nom nom!

I hopped out of bed bright and early this morning to retrieve them from the oven before Thumper had a chance to go exploring.  They looked good, they had a bit of crispness to them as I scraped them from the cookie sheet, and they tasted great.  But…

I remember my aunt’s cookies being crispy all the way through.  Mine are a little crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside.  They taste like marshmallows.

This is not a bad thing, mind you – I adore marshmallows, and have been known to eat them straight out of the bag.  But I wanted crispy, meringuey deliciousness, not marshmallows.


I guess that means I need to take another crack at those ice cream cookies next week for the 4-H cookie walk so that I can justify making more meringue cookies with the leftover egg whites. 🙂

Do you do Christmas cookies each year?  What are some of your favorite recipes?
