Katary...I'm going to try this as my first trial literally flopped with another recipe! lol  Is the Just Eggwhites at Kroger and is 3Tbs equivalent to 3 egg whites?  I only would need the water if I was using the just eggwhites, correct?

UPDATE:  I just returned from Kroger and purchased the  just egg whites and see the comparison on the side.  So, never mind.  I'll let you know how they turn out.  I can't tolerate the taste of saccharin...using xylitol instead.

Ok they are done and boy did they smell heavenly while cooking.  They are a little gummy like a marshmallow but maybe they will crisp up while cooling?

[A few hours later]....Wow they are airy and crunchy! Wonderful and flavorful!  Love them with the strawberry spread and chocolate.

Thanks!

These little creations are almost TOO good!... Between the sweetness and the crunch, you've gotta be careful! ;)

I watched this last night and wrote it all down.  These look SO good!   I was a little shocked when you said to bake them for "2 hours"..??   If I got that wrong, somebody holler at me.  I am staying with my mom for a couple days.  She had foot surgery, but I will try these when I get back home.   I had been looking for the sugar free meringue cookies at Publix, but they only have the low fat ones.  Thanks Gary!  Love the videos...keep them coming!!!  :D

Hi Jan! :)

Yep!... 2 hours at 225 degrees.

Remember Gary saying you could use any flavor extract you like.
My favorite combo is banana and raspberry (1/2 tsp each)... YUM!!! ;D

Would I leave out the water and use 1 eggwhite per spoonful  of dry egg whites

Hi Jo! :)

That sounds interesting.
I imagine that the finished cookies would be a bit heavier and you'd have to watch them in the oven as they might cook faster.

If you try this, please let us know how they turned out.

Sure Donna!  Here it is....

Carb free meringue cookies

3 Tbsp of powdered "Just Egg Whites"
1/2 cup sweetener (or 1 Tbsp of calorie free liquid sweetener)
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp vanilla & butternut extract (or any flavoring you choose)
1/2 cup warm water

Preheat oven to 225
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
In large mixing bowl lightly stir egg white powder into the water and let stand for 2 minutes.
After 2 minutes, mix on medium until dissolved and frothy
Add extract, cream of tartar, & sweetener.
Mix on high until fluffy
Spoon on to parchment paper
Bake at 225 for two hours.
Great with Walden Farms dips.
