LOLOL! I also have cookies in the oven. They are much higher than 10 cals, though. And they are for guests. And I am also baking the leftovers and they will go out into the car so Robert can take them to work tomorrow. They are the one and only thing I really struggle to resist.

Ok first try is reaqlly promising but needs a bit of tweaking - they were salty so I'm going to try again tomorrow. Tomorrow will be raspberry.

sounds yummy!!

10-31-2010, 05:56 PM
that sounds so delicious with the lemon or the raspberry

10-31-2010, 06:39 PM
Yes, I agree. They sound tasty!

10-31-2010, 06:45 PM
They both sound really tasty, but I'm partial to raspberry. Hope they turn out!

I had a cocoa meringue cookie recipe once that I made years ago. I remember that they were pretty good. Let us know how yours turn out!

Dude~ And I LOVE meringue cookies! I don't know how I missed that they're so low in calories but mama's got a brand new piping bag that's just begging to make some.

LOL I'm going to try chocolate (what was your recipe, do you remember?) - and also peanut butter with some PB2 once I perfect this. I plopped them on the cookie sheet yesterday but when I get it perfected I'll use a piping bag and a big star tip.

I don't think I have the recipe anymore, but will check.

If you google "meringue cookies with splenda" a number of recipes will pop up. Since they are basically just egg whites one would get some protein as well :)
They are easy and fun to make. I have not personally done them with splenda so I would be interested if anyone can comment on the flavor and texture versus "real" sugar ones.

11-01-2010, 03:39 PM
So they're 10 calories with splenda or sugar? I don't do artificial sweeteners.

11-01-2010, 05:22 PM
With Splenda - a cup of Splenda is 100 calories and a cup of sugar is 400. But even with sugar thats pretty low cal and you may not even need a whole cup.
I found a chocolate recipe online too so I'll try that.
Heres the basic recipe:
1 box diet jello powder (any flavor) (40 calories)
6 egg whites (or 12 tbs egg beaters whites) (150 calories)
1 cup splenda (100 calories)
** it also had 1/4 tsp cream of tartar and 1/4 tsp salt - I used that yesterday and it was nasty - really salty and I could taste the cream of tartar so I'm going to try it without.

Mix the jello & splenda in a bowl. Beat the whites with an electric mixer until they start to stiffen, then add the jello/Splenda mixture a tablespoon at a time. Beat until you have really stiff peaks.

Put 2 tbs mounds (or you can pipe it) on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake at 250 degrees for 1.5 hours. Turn off oven and prop open oven door with a wooden spoon, let cookies stay in the oven until cool.
Makes approx 25.

Found a choc recipe I'm gonna try.

11-01-2010, 06:25 PM
I wonder if you can freeze these??? I'd never be able to eat just 1-2. LOL

11-02-2010, 08:11 AM
One of the recipes said you can freeze up to 3 weeks.

Try #2 tonite - trying chocolate - stay tuned!

Ok so last night - OMG - epic failure.
I decide to do chocolate. Start whipping the egg whites,
didn't do the salt & cream of tartar. I start adding the
Splenda & cocoa and it liquefies. Ugh. So I thought I have
to do something with this I used expensive cocoa. So I start
chucking flour into it until I have a brownie consistency, throw
it in a loaf pan and bake it. OMG - I think if I threw it on the floor
it would have bounced and hit my vaulted ceiling. It had the
consistency of super firm tofu - GROSS!!!!! Next try will be the
original recipe with the jello. I will get this lol.
