Giving this 4 stars instead of 5 as making the meringue was SO easy and fast!! Loved that these were in the oven so quickly without a whole lot of clean-up needed!! I teach cake decorating, so of course, I piped the meringue into beautiful swirls before sprinkling them with the crushed peppermint candy. Unfortunately, a few hours after taking them out of the oven, they became VERY sticky and chewy when they'd initially been just perfect ~ light, crunchy and great flavor! I thought perhaps I'd done something wrong so quickly whipped up another batch......same issue. A few hours out of the oven and they were just as the first batch. I tried putting one of the batches back in the oven with the door ajar and that worked great! Then again, a few hours later, they were sticky & chewy. Now, a few days later, they are not sticky anymore but still a bit chewy melting very quickly instead of sticking to our teeth like glue. I want to try this recipe again because it was so much fun and so very very easy~ and who doesn't have 2 egg whites in the house when you suddenly need cookies for something or a quick home-made gift or dessert to take along somewhere? If anyone else had the experience of them turning sticky & chewy please let me know how you resolved it ~ I'd greatly appreciate hearing that ~ my resolution was to just eat them anyway!!
