Meringue Cookies

Now if you remember with the creme brulee recipe, you used a lot of egg yolks. This left you with a large amount of egg whites that were just all along. Well, when life hands you egg whites, you have to make meringue. If you want to top a pie, go right ahead. I prefer to make cookies!
