"This was my first attempt at a meringue cookie. It was spectacular! It is hard to imagine the deep, rich flavor of such a light cookie. I followed the directions except I dropped the cookies instead of piping them. They still turned out beautiful. I also included a 1/2tsp of vanilla. This is a great recipe to make on the same day as making a pound cake that uses four egg yolks. I made a ToH Lemmon Pound cake that called for 3 yolks. Plus, your oven will already be turned on. This delicious , easy cookie will be gracing our Holliday cookie trays this year!"
