Here are some fat-free cookies – meringue kisses.
This recipe basically calls for only 3 ingredients: egg whites, confectioner’s sugar, and cream of tartar. (Of course there’s a lot of variations: orange meringue, chocolate meringue, etc.)
Despite the simplicity of the ingredients, meringue cookies require a certain amount of time to bake and to cool down in the oven (all the recipes I’ve read ask for 2 to 3 hours in the oven), so be patient!
– 4 egg whites
– 2 1/4 cups confectioner’s sugar
– 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
