After reading about all of these Navy inspired dishes, I was ready for a soldiers kiss! : ) These were so simple and so good! I did half the recipe to try them out. I had to beat the egg white about 3-4 minutes during each time to get to the correct consistency. I used pre-chopped walnuts from the bag and a 1 Tablespoon cookie scoop to make level even-sized cookies, so they dried at the same time in the oven. I got 15 with half the recipe. When done, they will be slightly cracked on top. Mine took exactly the 40 minutes. Wait until slightly cool and slide a thin spatula under them to avoid any breaking. These were like little merengue cookies, but improved with the brown sugar. They were eaten up quite quickly.

So easy and tasty! I've never made a meringue cookie, but saw this, had the ingredients on hand, and just had to make it! The outside was crisp and chewy, the inside light and airy. I put them in for 35 minutes to begin with, the tops were dry, but the insides were still wet. I put them back in for the remaining 5 minutes, and they turned out perfect! These will definitely be made again- and soon!


I was surprised with these, they came out delicious! I made a batch the day before thanksgiving, took them out of the oven, and my two brothers and my Dad ate all of them in a couple of minutes. I had to make another batch the next day..... =D
