Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well.

OH MY !!!!!!! So good and so easy ! The kids, husband and Corgi loved them .
I've never even tried a meringue before today. They remind me of cotton candy, they melt in your mouth. It took me awhile to form them, I think I'll try putting the batter in a plastic bag and piping them next time.
I made these this wonderful Merinque Drop recipe for our local Celiac Support Group cookie exchange. These delicious cookies were the hit of the party with people excited about the flavor and texture. Best meringue drop I've ever had and easy to make! Thanks Land-O-Lakes! Love your site.
These came out quite good...once I realized I shouldn't make them so big. My first batch didn't set right in the middle, but when I did a second and made them smaller, they came out perfect. Melt in your mouth.
My son loved this cookie last Christmas, I loved the guilt free snacking! Will make again.
I have never used almond flavoring in my meringue cookies, what a change this recipe is to enjoy.
Most people have tried those they buy in a store, they are so surprised how good these are I also take toasted silvered almonds and sprinkle them on just as I turn the oven off.
