2. In an electric mixer, beat eggs on high for 5 minutes. Add confectioners sugar gradually, and beat again on high for another 5 minutes until batter thickens.
3. Gently fold the flour mixture into the batter, then add melted butter. Spoon or pipe batter into molds filling 3/4 of the way. Bake for approximately 8 minutes, or until edges are light brown.
