The cake part is delicious and the creme filling is light, though I'm nervous about raw egg whites in it. I took the photo of this dish. It was a huge success at work. Most were gone within an hour. I'd make them slightly smaller than a tablespoon size. They really spread out when baked and mine all overla[ped. I had to cook for 9 mins, as 8 mins made the centers too wet. Let them sit for 5 minutes minimum on the cookie sheets or they will fold up funny on the spatula. Great recipe I will make again!


This is the same recipe I have made for over 20 years.. my sons favorite, and as for the marshmellow comment... I laughed.. if you look at the ingredents in marshmellows.. its about the same, you don't have to use store marshmellow, you can make marshmellow, I make marshmellow all the time. YUMMY


uh... It says "Marshmallow filling"... but... there's no call for marshmallow in the recipe. am i missing it?
