“This is an adopted recipe which I have just made...September 2005. These are very easy to make but if you are thinking they will be like meringues like I did.....they are not. They come out like small flat cookies. Very sweet, so someone with a sweet tooth will more than likely love these. Please make sure that you do put them on baking paper lined trays to cook as they will stick to the tray if you don't. Ideal way to use up egg whites left over from recipes using only yolks. Please feel free to let me know of any changes you might think of. Thanks to the original poster for sharing this recipe :)”
