WOW! I was amazed at the flavor and how simple they were to make! I now have a good recipe that uses just egg whites. I never know what to do with them after making homemade noodles. I do suggest letting the cookies cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before removing them because the bottoms seem to fall out of them. I will make again!

The flavor of these cookies is excellent, however when baked at 275 as indicated in the recipe they become thin and spead out and are not attractive. I baked the first pan as directed and was very disappointed. The next two pans I increased the heat to 350 and the results were much better. Whatever you do, don't forget to spray the pan! :-)

This is the perfect recipe for when you're at someone else's house for the holidays... it doesn't use a bunch of flour, which is something people only keep if they bake a lot. Warning: the cookies get gooey and flat if there's not enough chunky stuff inside. I used chopped pecans and chocolate chips. Also, I took the other reviewer's advice and set my oven to 350. They're done before they look done, I took them out when the edges were getting brown. Liberally grease your pan, a light coating won't do the trick. Not a pretty cookie, but very, very yummy, and economical!

These cookies were very tasty, but mine came out extremely flat. I do not know why, but I will try to make them again and see how it goes a second time. I whipped until the eggs were stiff, but the cookie mix still ran on when put on the pan. Good, but I won't make a third time if they run again.

It makes catching a frisbee in my mouth fun to eat.

These are a delicious blend of meringues and pralines that even my "Toll House" only son loves!

Delicious! The only thing I changed was the oven temp. to 325...i tried it at 350 as suggested in other reviews, but they spread out too thin and burned on the bottom..they turned out perfect @ 325 for 15 min.

The cookies were good, however very sweet. I also baked at 350 for 12 min. I will be adding this recipe to my favorites list.
