Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

made these twice!! both times they tasted great but looked horrible!! only made green ones the first time...the 2nd time i made a double batch red and green ones....same thing....tasted great looked horrible!! i think the problem was allowing them to cool with oven turned off!! maybe should have turned oven down to 200 for a time!! not sure but definitely won't make them again!!

Did not turn out. The first time tried with truvia sugar. The second time with regular sugar. Soft peaks formed just fine, but I think adding the extracts made it too runny.

We're sorry to hear you had some trouble with this cookie. These can be tricky to make, since meringue is so delicate to work with. We suggest making sure there is no yolk in the egg whites and beating until very stiff.
