How to make these... in Pastry & Baking Posted May 2, 2006 My mother used to make these "cookies" all the time during my childhood. I've got the recipe somewhere. If my mother can make them <bless her beautiful, shining heart> then you know its easy. As I recall its just egg whites, sugar, cream of tartar, maybe a pinch of salt. I think you beat until soft peak? Then bake.Truely one of my most favorite foods in the world. I like them plain. They are melt in your mouth goodness! That special texture is really divine. Thanks for bringing back memories!
