- 3 large eggs (separated)
- 1 packet of Splenda (1 packet = about 1/4 tsp)
- 1 dash salt
- 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
- 4 ounces fat-free cream cheese (cold)
- Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees.
- Separate the eggs – yolks from white.
- In a small glass or stainless steel bowl, mix egg whites and cream of tartar for about 3-5 minutes or until stiff and dry (egg whites should look and feel like meringue or are stiff enough to form a “mountain peak” without toppling over).
- In a separate bowl, mix the Splenda, salt and cream cheese with the yolks. **optional: add desired flavor(s) to the yolk mixture.
- Using a spatula, gently fold the egg yolk mixture into the white mixture do 1/3 at a time into the white mixture. Do with care so you do not break down the whites.
- Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray or use parchment paper. Spoon the mixture on the sheet. Make 6 small rounds then partially flatten each mound.
- Bake for 35 minutes (you want them slightly softer, not crumbly). Let cool on the sheet for a few minutes, and then remove to a rack and allow them to cool.
- Store in a loosely open sack and allow to rest on the counter before use (otherwise they might be too moist). May be refrigerated or frozen.
