I needed a bunch of these so I doubled the recipe. I used 1 1/2 cups sugar because what was put in the recipe was not enough. Other that I changed nothing else. Really good cookie!!!!! Thank you!!!!

what's wrong with these? they sounded so promising i think the amount of sugar is off, now that i look at other meringue recipes. sugar helps stiffen the egg whites and give them that shiny look. maybe they would have held their shape better

This was a fabulous treat! I used Instant Jamaican Coffee as opposed to regular, and I piped (for added height) the cookies onto my pan before I tossed them in the oven and they had a fabulous texture when they finished. Crispy on the outside & tender and chewy on the inside. They melted in your mouth, and the guests I served them to had nothing but rave reviews for them. This is definitely going to be added to my holiday fav list!

This is my first meringue cookie so I am not sure how it is supposed to taste. I doubled the recipe, used 1 T. of the cocoa and instead used 1 T. instant cappacino mix toffee flavor. Also, I didn't use any sugar, but four packets of artificial sweetener instead. The cookies were flat, airy, light, and did melt in your mouth. I would probably up the sugar next time while keeping everything else I changed the same. I would make them again. I have been dieting and these are great for a nice chocolate treat. I ate them with a little light whipped cream and they were great!

Um this didn't turn out at ALL like a meringue...but it still tasted fine. I'm not sure what went wrong, I followed the directions exactly, and I mixed the ingredients for an hour (45 minutes by hand, 15 with an automatic mixer) but stiff peaks NEVER formed. So as a result the meringues were flat and airy, like strange cookies. Maybe because I'm at a high altitude (7500 feet) but I wasn't sure how to adjust. Still, they tasted good.
