Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large dry glass or metal bowl whip egg whites until soft peaks form. Add vanilla, cream of tartar, and cornstarch, and continue whipping at medium speed while gradually adding the confectioners sugar 1/4 cup at a time. Whip until the whites have a nice peak, but not stiff. Fold in cashew pieces with a rubber spatula. Drop rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for about 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges are lightly browned. Cool on wire racks. Store in an airtight container at room temperature when completely cooled.

Wonderful Flavor. Before adding the cashews, I separated the batch into 4th. I made 1 plain, 1 with chrush candy canes, 1 with mini M&M's, and of course 1 with the cashews. (My favorite) Sweeter than I remember from my family recipies. I did not use parchment paper. I very lightly sprayed an old cookie sheet and as long as I only let the cookies set for a minute or two after coming out of the oven, they stayed together fine. Leaving them on too long, they do stick and may break due to being fradgile cookies.

This recipe is great! So easy to follow. The meringues are slightly crisp, with a airy, buttery center filled with cashews. Not too sweet, either, although I used lightly salted nuts so that might have offset the sweetness. This recipe filled 3 industrial-size baking sheets with about 30-50 cookies per sheet. They did crack while baking, so I'm wondering if there is a way to prevent that... The best part about these is that you can eat several of them without too much guilt :)
