Expert Tips

Strong coffee can be used in the filling in place of the coffee liqueur.

Parchment paper is sold in grocery stores along with other paper, plastic, and foil wraps. With its nonstick surface, parchment paper works well underneath cakes, cookies, and meringues.

To make cocoa cookies meringues, add 2 teaspoons of unsweetened cocoa with the 1/2 cup of sugar.
