Older boys and girls will enjoy making Christmas Lady Cookies. This is an easy recipe for a meringue cookie to serve for Christmas Day.
Beat egg whites until stiff; add 1/4 cup sugar, beating all the while. Beat the yolks until thick and lemon colored, then beat in remaining 1/4 cup of sugar. Fold the white mixture into the yolks, then fold in vanilla, flour and salt. Drop on ungreased paper-lined cookie sheets and bake for 15 minutes in a slow oven (300°). When cool remove from paper and sprinkle with confectioner's sugar.Recipe Source: Christmas to Candlemas in a Catholic Home by Helen McLoughlin, The Liturgical Press, Collegeville, Minnesota
