    This recipe is meant to be the "glue" for gingerbread houses - and it is an excellent recipe for that purpose!

    I'm pretty sure that 5T of meringue powder is too much after trying this recipe and finding that using 1/4 cup water made a thick paste. I added at least another 1/2 cup more water adn it turned out ok. Since then I have compared this recipe to many others, including others on this website and the measurements just seem to be off on this one.

    Kittykelly, I believe you can also use plain egg white powder. You should be able to find this in your supermarket baking section. However, I purchase mine at my local health store (GNC, etc.) in the form of egg white protein powder. Check the ingredients and make sure it says 100% egg white powder. You get a lot more product thatn n n n n n s n n n n n n ounce for ounce - cheaper!!!
