Chocolate Meringue Cookies
These were yummy! I modified based on the suggestions of another reviewer. I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup, boubled the cocoa (I used Frys), and upped the chips to 1/2 cup. I added the cream of tartar and vanilla to the foamy eggy whites, and once I had soft peaks, I started slowly adding the sugar to a running mixer. I was worried when I lost some volume while folding in the cocoa and chips, but they still turned out great. I've been looking for a way to use up egg whites when I need a lot of yolks for home made ice cream. Most ice cream recipes call for 8 yolks, so next time, I will try doubling this recipe to use up 6/8 egg whites.

Key Lime Cheesecake I
I normally don't rate recipes, but I brought a small piece to work with my lunch, and I'm sitting here wishing I'd brought a bigger piece! This was sooooo good. Made a few changes (after reading all the reviews). I used Nilla Cookies for the crust and added 1 tsp of cinnamon. I used 4 bricks of cream cheese and 4 eggs. I used 1 1/2 T of lime zest and 2/3 cup of lime juice. Also increase the sugar to 1 1/4 cups. Followed baking directions exactly and had a perfect creamy-coloured cheesecake (no browning) and no cracking.
