2 comments. Keep in mind i was doing these by hand and i assume most of you have an electric blender. [Note: The problems this member had are, undoubtedly, due to not using an electric mixer. You need one for egg whites--it's very difficult to whip them up properly without it]
1. This was disgustingly weet... I could really taste the splenda as opposed to sugar. quite gross actually.
2. adding the vanilla killed the meringue. it became flat and no amount of whpping will bring it back up. i tried the recipe twice to se if i had done something wrong the first time but nope, it screwed up again the second time to. perhaps adding the vanilla in the beginning would change that.
i hope others have more luck than i do.
I will look SMASHING
