These are light and airy little cookies, with a dollap of Lemon Curd in the middle, You can make them soft , and marshmallow like , Or you can make them a crisp cookie. I think these are good after a heavy meal, and a good summertime cookie also. The first kind of cookie, that my Grandmother taught me to make were meringue cookies . This recipe was in our local newspaper .
