Tip #2

- Substitute cookie sheets lined with aluminum foil which have been sprayed with no-stick cooking spray for parchment-lined cookie sheets.

Tip #3

- It is important to make sure no egg yolk gets into the egg whites. Egg yolk will keep the egg whites from forming stiff peaks.

Tip #4

- This recipe was developed using alternative flours and products labeled as “gluten-free.” The best source for additional information is the ingredient listing on product packaging. Learn about gluten-free baking.
