12 days of cookies: Day 7 - Meringue (cloud) cookies

Light as a feather... sweet as a cookie!  That's how the saying goes, right? :)

In a sea of delicious drop cookies loaded with the fixin's (and, ahem, calories), this delicate and crisp melt-in-your-mouth cookie will shine and pleasantly surprise eaters everywhere.  With just six ingredients (five, if you omit the chocolate), they are practically calorie free at 35 whoppers a cookie.  In other words, make your own cloud cookies and chow down!

Want to make them extra festive?  Throw in a few drops of food coloring.  Here's the recipe to make your own batch of meringue cookies... be sure to double it because they disappear quickly!
