Okay, I finished some more cookies. These are a little more girly than the other ones. I copied these off of the web, but not to worry - I am using these only for my personal learning curve. So if these look like your cookies - I am not marketing them. I learned that the meringue powder definitely needs to be dissolved before using although I am still disappointed that the icing does not stay nice after I start using it. In the bowl it is so creamy looking, but before long it is shiny and losing its edge. Bah. I am happier with these regardless.
