What's your favorite meringue cookie recipe? I tried making some today, and I ended up with just a big mess! I'd love to try again!

I was just looking for a good macaron recipe. I've never tried to make them because they look a little fussy, but I bought some this weekend from a local pastry shop and we all enjoyed them so much that I thought it would be worth the effort. Anyway, last night I found this recipe from Martha Stewart, and it has good reviews, although they suggest watching the temperature and time to prevent burning.
If you just wanted to make the cookies without the filling and skip making the tiny sandwiches, they would probably be very tasty that way.
I hope someone else can post a good tested-and-true recipe for you.
Meringues are actually really simple, with just 2 or 3 ingredients. It's the execution that can be tricky. You might be better off telling us what kind of mess they were so we can help troubleshoot what went wrong.
Macarons are actually a different thing altogether, since they contain "flour" (usually almond flour).
If you take a look at this recipe, the eggs, sugar and cream of tartar are the base for the cookie, everything else is flavoring or garnish: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Meringue-Stars-240931

Yes, I guess I should have specified that a macaron is not a true meringue. But they are meringue-like (relying mostly on egg-whites) and I responded because of the coincidence - I had just bookmarked the recipe - and in case the OP was interested in something similar.
