Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I think the better sugar replacement may be agave or even organic honey. Splenda is not a healthy substitute. In fact I was told that splenda actually does more harm than good to the body. As for the peppermint extract I combined it with chocolate it was heavenly I must say! Submitted by:

Sounds delicious! I make a dessert using two boxes of SF pudding, 3 cups of fat free milk and 8 ounces of FF cream cheese. (Blend the cream cheese and a cup of milk until smooth first then add the remaining ingredients!) I think this would be WONDERFUL in the shell! I can hardly wait to try. Submitted by:

I did make these as 12 shells and used 1 1/4 cup of Splenda for baking instead. They were delightful and only 25 calories for 1/12 th of recipe! Submitted by:

Sorry but you are using sugar in most recepies. We don't need extra sugar to get nutrition. We have enough in our fruits. Submitted by:

I make a meringue cookie very similar to this, but I just use 3 egg whites, 2 T. sugar and 1/2 t. vanilla. Line 2 cookie sheets with aluminum foil and use a spoon to shape little quarter-sized disks on foil. Cook and let cool in the oven as directed above. When cool you can just peel them off. YUM!

I made these heart-shaped for Valentine's Day! I used frozen strawberry yogurt for the filling, with a dab of fat-free topping and a few chocolate curls on top. Love all the variations that show up here. Really liked the mocha flavor, too. Want to try almond extract next time. Submitted by:

Extra yolks are AWESOME protein for your dog or cat ... or make Yellow Cake w/ them .... or cook up for kids as they NEED extra protein & cholesterol is not yet a factor for them (scramble them with some fat free milk) Submitted by:

I just saw this recipe, ran to my kitchen and put the mixture together- I left out the sugar and added super egg protein powder (Evox) which is made of egg white for high protein.
As I know how important good protein is for good muscle!
And I used my muffin tray, got 12 huge muffins! awesome!

I am making these-they smell great! I'm a little disappointed with the directions. I'm pretty sure it's 8 inches around, and not 8 inches across. I made two, 8 inches wide...and WHOA...huge. I finished the rest smaller. Good thing they're low in calories and fat! Submitted by:

I made meringues with Splenda once and was VERY disappointed with the results. You can probably use half sugar half Splenda, though (but I haven't tried it). The sugar provides a lot of the texture in meringue. Submitted by:

Holy Cow!! If they seem dry cut the cooking and hold time time by fifteen minutes. To give it more flavor add extracts (no fat in extracts).I used coconut extract and flakes, made a fresh raspberry / almond, cannoli cream basic filling, wah la. Perfecto. Submitted by:
