Combining the effervescent nature of champagne with the unique texture of a meringue cookie is a match made in heaven. The crisp essence of champagne is captured in a delicate cookie, crisp like champagne on the outside with a slightly chewy inside. These lovely cookies pair well with other sweet flavors like vanilla, chocolate and stone fruits. A perfect party favor at baby and bridal showers, luncheons, and weddings!
