This is one of my favorites - I've been making these "Forgotten Cookies" for about 15 years. Like so many have said, there are endless varieties. However, I reduced the sugar to 1/3 c. and they taste just as good! Submitted by:

ooppps! I think I misunderstood the directions. My egg whites were nice and stiff, I added the sugar gradually as I continued to beat the mixture. It fell flat. I now have thin drippy pancake like cookies on cookie sheets in my oven. The foil stuck to them! Starting 2nd batch, do I oil pans? Submitted by:

I love meringues! I usually make mine plain or with a bit of crushed candy cane though. I also like to pipe them in the shape of "kisses" with a pastry bag and sprinkle with colored sugar. Submitted by:

We've made these for years & sometimes added sifted coco powder with the sugar to make Chocolate Forgotten Cookies. Use vanilla or chocolate extract and add mini choc. chips & pecans. They're wonderful all the time except on humid days. They take longer to dry & must be kept in airtight container Submitted by:

I love these cookies. They are easy and definitely help you stay away from fats. I use 1/8 t cream of tartar and 1/8 t of salt. I'll be making these forever! Submitted by:
