lesliesmom replied: Since I saw this I have been telling everyone about these. My daycare, a director of ministries at Church and DDs teacher. Now the teacher has made these before and she told me that the utensils (i.e. bowl, beaters, etc). should be cold (stick them in the freezer before use). Thought I would pass that tidbit on... she said they don't "rise" like they should if the utensils were warm...
Thank you for sharing. I'm so looking forward to making these with my kids next week.
thanks for the tip!
I knew there was a trick to egg whites, but didn't remember what it was.
PrairieMom replied: ok, i'm making them right now. The recipie apparently makes about 2 dozen cookies, and don't double it, or you will run out of room in your oven. I will let you all know how they turn out in the morning.
Hillbilly Housewife replied:
I made them last night. I doubled it. I ran out of room.
They're horribly sweet. And mine didn't turn out hollow in the middle... but it's ok. The kids love em. They're way too sweet for me...
did yours set up? mine never got hard, and weren't hard in the middle either. I'm gonna try again tonight, and maybe make the oven hotter? I don't think I under beat them, I have a kitchen aid, and had it on high for a full 12 minutes, and had stiff peaks.
Hillbilly Housewife replied:
They sort of did. They were kind of mushy in the middle. I beat mine with a hand mixer... and I did it for about 18 minutes. It was really fluffy... the peaks were setting in the bowl like meringue peaks. Not enough I guess.... I probably won't be remaking them..at least not til next year.
well, I beat mine again, with my kitchen aid for the full 15 minutes, they were very firm peaks. but they didn't turn out the 2nd time either, although, it was def. better than the 1st time.
I increased the oven temp to 325 too.
next time I will increase the temp to 375, and grease the waxed paper. that should do it. They still tasted good tho.
Hillbilly Housewife replied: Good luck!!!!
Try putting some food coloring in it, for fun...
