Meringue Cookies

Submitted by: REDRANE

Introduction

A Light Alternative A Light Alternative
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    2 egg whites
    3 tbsp white sugar ( 9 tsp )
    .5 tsp Vanilla extract
    ( other suitable choices are almond and peppermint extracts )

Directions

Preheat oven to 250 F.

Beat egg whites on high in an electric mixer until firm peaks are formed when the beaters are lifted.

While continuing to beat the eggs add in the sugar 1 tbsp at a time. Finish the mixture with the flavour extract of your choice.

Use a piping or plastic bag to pipe the mixture onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, making "kiss" shapes. Can also be made into nests in cupcake tins, perfect for filling afterwards!

Bake for 45 minutes or until quite dry to the touch.
Let cool and enjoy!

    Loved it! I managed to make 24 small cookies and I only used 6 tsp's of sugar for a total of 145 calories for the whole batch!! 6 calories per cookie. Excellent find! I will do this more often as I have a pretty big sweet tooth! Thank you so much! - 4/4/09
