MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 24, 2011

I am constantly being asked to make this recipe. One year I made two (2) batches and asked a friend to deliver and, of course, take some for himself... He ate all but 7 of them (I had made about 25 total)! I finally understood why I got such funny looks when I asked several people how they liked them. Now I make them every year. Mouth watering!!!!

Super easy and beautiful. I added 1/8 tsp peppermint extract too. I made some pink and some green - very pretty on my Christmas table.

I love this light, melt-in-your-mouth cookie. I mix the candy into the meringues instead of sprinkling on top.

These are healthy and delicious. My sister is on Weight Watchers this year, so she'll really appreciate a healthy treat!
