    Great recipe! Very clear directions. I tried it with Splenda blend and it came out great! This recipe has lots of possible variations. I tried it with coconut extract and some unsweetened coconut. I can see this cookie being a big hit for dessert day at work, where everyone is always on a diet. - 2/11/09

    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. - 12/19/09

    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! - 1/8/09

    These are the biggest hit of all my holiday cookies - and one of the EASIEST meringue recipes out there! I substituted a little bit of beet juice instead of food coloring. Made a nice light pink cookie. - 12/15/07

    First time I made meringue cookies, and I am hooked! I didn't use the peppermint extract though. They are light, sweet, and definitely help me with my chocolate/sweet fix of the day! Thanks! - 12/20/08
