    These cookies are so strange. They are really light and the sensation is of eating little balloons, but people love them. This is a great recipe to have on hand when you are making something that calls for a lot of yolks.

    Hi Telliecoin, I made these for a group that doesn't like nuts, but these are so much better with walnuts broken into large pieces. The fat in the nuts is a great foil for the meringue.
