JITTERBUGGARE

I’ve actually never made nor had this cookie as far as I can remember so I decided to give it a go.

Its half cookie half meringue! Easy to make and delicious. I flavored mine with pumpkin spice cause lets be honest FALL is here!!! 😍

Crisp cookie with soft meringue how can you not like that! They dont look very fancy BUT dont let looks be deceiving! We all learned never to judge a book by its cover 😂

Lets get to baking!
