2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs (whites only)

1 tablespoon fresh lime or lemon juice

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, melted, cooled to room temperature


1 (16-ounce) package vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark)

Narrow ribbon in school colors

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray cookie sheets with no-stick cooking spray. Generously butter handle of wooden spoon. Set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine egg whites and lime juice in bowl. Beat at high speed until foamy. Continue beating, gradually adding sugar, until glossy and stiff peaks form. Gently stir in flour and butter.

  3. STEP 3

    Spoon 2 teaspoons batter onto prepared cookie sheet; evenly spread batter to 3-inch circle. Repeat with remaining batter, placing only 3 cookies onto each cookie sheet. (Do not re-use cookie sheets without first washing and re-applying no-stick cooking spray.)

  4. STEP 4

    Bake 5-8 minutes or until edges just begin to brown. Using thin metal spatula, carefully lift edge of cookie; immediately shape by wrapping around buttered handle of wooden spoon. Gently slide cookie off spoon handle onto cooling rack. Place cookie seam-side down to cool completely. Repeat with remaining cookies. If cookies harden before rolling, return cookies to oven about 1 minute to soften.

  5. STEP 5

    Melt candy coating in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, 3-4 minutes or until smooth. Carefully dip each end of cookie in coating. Gently shake cookie to remove excess coating. (Cookies are very fragile.) Place onto waxed paper 15 minutes or until coating is set. Repeat with remaining cookies and coating.

  6. STEP 6

    Write messages on narrow strips of paper. Insert 1 message inside each cookie. Tie ribbons in school colors around center of each cookie.

Tip #1

If you are using a dark cookie sheet, first line with aluminum foil; then spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Tip #2

When cookies are baked, immediately loosen them from cookie sheet with thin metal spatula. Working quickly, place buttered handle of wooden spoon on one side of cookie; carefully roll up. Keep bowl of spoon over edge of counter to make rolling easier. Slide cookie off spoon handle onto cooling rack. If cookies harden before rolling them, put cookies back into the oven about 1 minute or until they soften.

Tip #3

The candy coating can be microwaved. Place into microwave-safe bowl; microwave candy coating 60 seconds. Stir; continue microwaving 30-60 seconds or until candy coating is melted. Dip each end of cookies in coating.

Tip #4

If you would like to freeze these cookies, wait to dip the cookies into the coating until a day or two before serving. To freeze, cool the cookies completely and carefully place them into plastic freezer container before freezing.
