These actually started out as French macarons. I was about to make the batter and the idea of piping butterfly shaped macs threw me. I imagined myself with one failed batch after another. So I took the easy way out and make these meringues.
I'm glad I did. These are a perfect Spring cookie or tucked into an Easter basket. You can add whatever flavor you like. I went with plain vanilla but lemon, orange or mint would also be great.
