I wanted to try out my new-to-me KitchenAid stand mixer and the whisk attachment thingie, so I tried this recipe. After reading some of the previous comments, I knew I should check everything as I went along and not just follow the original recipe, and that turned out to be right for me. My mixer had the egg whites at stiff peak in only 6 minutes (room temp egg whites in room temp metal mixing bowl). I wanted to add 1 tsp of vanilla so I had measured out 2-1/2 cups of powdered sugar. I only used maybe 2/3 of a cup. I just spooned the mixture onto an airbake cookie pan lined with parchment paper, set the oven to 250 and baked the meringues for 45 minutes. Perfection! I do live in Arizona, and it is very dry here now, so maybe that's why my experience was very different from others. Overall, recipe was a good jumping off point for this novice. I'll try this recipe again, with my variations, and use different flavorings and baking times/temps to see which I end up liking best.
