When I was young we used to get a cookie at the bakery that I loved.  It was white, puffy, and hollow on the inside.  Kind of like a Mexican Wedding Cookie, but hollow and crunchier.  Does anyone else remember those?  Does anyone remember what they were called??  I thought they were call Sand Tarts, but when I search for sand tart recipes the only things that show up are versions of Mexican Wedding Cookies.  Please let me know if you know what I'm talking about, or even better, if you have a recipe for those cookies!!  Thank you!  relaxed

Yuppers……K8memphis is correct. There are meringue cookies. Very simple to make.

From your description, I believe they were a form of Mexican Wedding Cookie. There are many different recipes and the are called by many different names.  I don't think a meringue has anything in common with a Mexican Wedding Cookie.

I agree that meringues have nothing to do Mexican wedding cookies — but they are white puffy and hollow — it’s the only hollow cookie I could think of

actually there is way more than one kind of hollow cookie and I only went to chef google -- so on Pinterest they have 22 different kinds but Pinterest confuses me so I don't usually go on there probably some repeats in there but yeah twenty-two -- and if you screw up macaroons you get a hollow cookie there too -- so plenty of recipes of different kinds of hollow cookies -- 

these resurrection/easter cookies might be the ones? lots of recipes for those --

Haha, my first thought, -K8, is that macarons can be hollow!
