Quick ~ help! I need some tried & true delicious WW dessert ideas. Something easy, yet elegant, because I'm the dessert person for a potluck this weekend. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I can't take credit for any of these ... I found them at www.allrecipes.com
They have recipes for everything under the sun! I don't know the WW point equivelant for any of them :confused: , but they are all low-fat/low calorie . Just put "low fat" in the search engine on their site. These all came with the nutritional info. ready. I just copied and pasted them as on the site.

Mini Meringues
Submitted by: Kelly Sutton
Makes 12 pieces
Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 40 Minutes
Average Rating:*****
" These cruncy dainties are great with coffee or with cream for dessert. And they're low fat! Substitute 2 teaspoons instant coffee granules or 1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa for the vanilla if you like. Coffee kisses are great sandwiched together with melted white or dark chocolate. Spooned vanilla ones are good with cream and chocolate ones are good as finger biscuits with coffee. "
Ingredients
2 egg whites
1/2 cup superfine sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions
1 Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2 In large bowl, beat egg whites until stiff, but not dry. Gradually beat in sugar until a little of the mixture between your thumb and forefinger feels smooth, not gritty. Stir in vanilla. Pipe or spoon small portions onto baking tray and bake 35 minutes, or until dry but not brown. Turn off oven and leave meringues to cool inside.
