    Preheat the fan oven to 180°C. Shape the dough into cookies and cook them for 8-10 minutes. Cool them and then crush them in a plastic bag.

    For the marshmallow meringue, put water, 1 1/2 cup of sugar, cream of tartar in a pan over low heat and bring it to boil until it looks like a syrup (don’t mix it).
