  1. These are great! This is the best meringue kiss recipe I have ever used. I changed it up a bit and instead of the vanilla I used mint extract and they came out great.:o)
  2. I reduced the sugar to 1 cup used 1/2 tsp. peppermint extract instead of vanilla and tinted 1/2 the batter green and 1/2 pink. The batter was very grainy before I put them in the oven all night but they were perfect when done. Good recipe!
  3. Easy and turn out great. Old family favorite.

  5. fast and easy. make sure the egg whites are whipped until stiff! Melt in your mouth delicious. Try white chocolate chips - YUMMY!

  7. i love this recipe! i lost my original so i am so glad it is still here! first of all i read the current reviews and i have to diagree if you cooki any kind of meringue while it is humid outside these will not turn out! the texture is a little crisp outside with - Read more ...
  8. These are like candy. A little too sweet but the consistency came out perfect. Takes too much time to add the sugar by teaspoonful. Recommend you have a helper to spoon teaspoons of sugar in as you are beating it.
  9. Mine didn't turn out the best. I felt like I had to mix them FOREVER and then they completely flattened out. They taste pretty good but are completely flat crumbly and grainy.
  10. Even though they were pretty sugary they were still so good (and didn't last long at all!). I left out the chocolate chips and substituted peppermint extract for the vanilla and they came out fine (no marshmellow middle). This was the first meringue recipe I used that the cookies actually turned out right!
