I just made these for my christmas platters, they were very easy to make. They turned out wonderful and tasted great! thank you for this recipe. I try to make a couple of new kinds cookies every year and make the old familiar ones my family loves, but they do get boring year after year so it's nice to have new recipes to try.

    Too sweet

    Lisa Grim from BOBTOWN, PA

    I actually burnt mine, next time I'll use parchment paper instead of just greasing the pan. My boyfriend liked them (except for the burnt bottoms), but they were too sweet for my taste. I will try to make them again. Next time I won't burn them.

    This cookie can be used at any holiday depending on the color sugar used. It will be fun for Halloween treats with orange and black, purple, etc. Our church festival sells them fast.

    Wonderful, light, & sweet

    Jan Wilkins from BLYTHEVILLE, AR

    I am always baking things to send with my husband at work...and since it is spring, I though this would make a light--refreshing cookie. When he came home from work, he informed me that I didn't send enough of them. Actually, I sent the whole batch!

    What a GREAT cookie!

    Ms. Balschuk from FARMINGDALE, NY

    I could eat an entire batch of these all by myself. The meringue is perfect. Light and very airy. These heavenly little cookies are a MUST for every Holiday baker to include this year! Once you try them you will FLIP over them as we all did! My grandson calls them CLOUD cookies . . . because they taste like clouds. I added a little powdered (pulverized) candy cane to the last batch. WOW!

    These cookies are great!! My boys and I made them for Valentine's Day. We put a few in clear bags, tied them up and the kids enjoyed giving them to their grandparents and teachers as Valentine gifts. The cookies were very sweet but fun and easy to make. They could easily be made anytime or for any occasion using various colors of sugar crystals.

    These cookies are wonderful! They are especially pretty if you add a drop or two of red or green food coloring. I get many compliments when I make these tasty treats. Another plus is they don't contain any wheat so they are great treats for those avoiding wheat products.

    We'll always have Paris

    Wendy Shear from Los Angeles, CA

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. My first trip to Paris was with my parents, more years ago than I care to remember. Being young & foolish the art, fashion & spirit of the City of Lights were lost on me, but not a wonderful light confection I gorged on from a small bakery I found near the hotel. I have never been able to reproduce these light as air cookies until I notice this recipe on your site. Try theses & remember Kid,

    White Air Cookies

    Michelle Yellowhair from Taylor, AZ

    I have made these for years and we call them White Chip Cookies. I like to use mini candy coated chocolates in them, and they are good that way. I also make them with Choc chips. As my family won't eat nuts, I do not add them to the recipe. I make them all the time and just not for the Christmas holiday. These are so easy to make. Love them!!!!!

    Light as Air

    jv from MI

    These cookies are just like their name...light as air. And so easy to make. They are a great little something for the sweet tooth, but not heavy on the tummy. I learned to make these years ago with Frosted Flakes...adds that little.

    Low in fat.

    Nancy Martel from East Montpelier, VT

    I'm in Weight Watchers and these cookies are great! I just cut back on the amount of chocolate morsel and the sugar, or you can use splenda instead of sugar.

    Great cookies to make considering the amount of snow that we're getting this winter! Do want to point out, however, that the recipe yields 30 or the equivalent of 2 1/2 dozen, not 20, as the recipe indicates!

    The perfect cookie for me since I have an allergy to gluten and have to look for gluten free recipes.
