Walnut-Filled Pillows

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2010
I made these cookies and followed the recipe closely. I only got 18 cookies out of the batch, but I think I should have rolled the dough much thinner. The cookies that tasted the best were the ones with a thinner dough layer. I agree with the other reviews that suggest adding a touch of sugar to the dough. And I also plan to make these cookies with pecans next time. They are not an overly sweet cookie, but I like that! You will get a better seal if you wet your finger and run it around the edge of the dough to dampen it a bit.

Martha Washington Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
I haven't cooked a lot with egg whites and my first attempt at these cookies was a complete flop. The second time around I beat the egg whites well past "foamy" stage and continued beating until they peaked. That seemed to work much better. One I began adding other ingrediants, the peaks seemed to break down. I recommend beating the egg whites all the way to peak or stiff peak and then mixing as little as possible once you begin adding the brown sugar, etc. Overall a super easy recipe... once you get the eggs right.
