I just adore these! They are so cool- light as air, kind of hard on the outside and melt-in-your-mouth on the inside. I followed the recipe exactly, only I did add about 1/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar. You should start with room temperature egg whites...I got mine in the bowl, and let them sit for about 30 minutes. Cold whites means more mixing time. Add the sugar veeerrrrryyyy slowly, and you really must mix and mix and mix- it takes quite some time. Do not stop mixing to take a break- keep that motion going nonstop. Patience is key- if you rush these, you will NOT get the results you want! I have a gas oven and had no problems- just make sure you give it plenty of time to preheat, and then don't be tempted to peek- that lets the heat escape. These came out perfect for me, and I am delighted! I am going to play around with the add-ins (cranberry and almond maybe?), and will definitely color some from Christmas! Fantastic recipe DOGIRL- thanks for sharing :)
