Meringue Cookies

Even though they're fat-free and low calorie, these are still scrumptious!

Meringue Cookies

3 egg whites, room temperature
1 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 235 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Whip egg whites to soft peaks. Gradually add the other ingredients while whipping to stiff peaks. Drop by spoonfuls or pipe onto prepared cookie sheets.

Bake for 1 1/2 hours, turn oven off. Open oven door about one inch and let sit in oven for an additional hour. Remove carefully from parchment.

*Also delicious with mini chocolate chips added.
*Can replace the sugar with 1/2 to 3/4 cup of Splenda to make sugar-free!

Can just drop by tablespoonful for plain, or get creative with holiday shapes! (photos are linked for credit and/ or tutorial)
