REVIEW: 1 star recipe rating
This is supposed to be a meringue cookie. You may have to decrease the amt of egg whites to 3 or whip the egg whites first and then blend. This recipe is gross and I had to waste the whole batch.

There sems to be something missing . I beat this for over 5 minutes and it was still very thin. There was no way you could pinch off. I spooned them on the trays. They are in the oven now. I hope I didn't waste all that money the hazel nuts are pricey.
