No-Carb Meringue Cookies

That's right, you heard me, NO CARB!
These little guys are just about amazing, and a great
snack to curb that sweet tooth.

4 egg whites
1 pk. sugar free jello
vanilla extract

Prep: Preheat oven to 225 and line 2
baking sheets with aluminum foil and spray them
with non-stick butter (we use Kroger brand :) 

Add the vanilla (as much as you want, i usually
pour from the bottle and count "1 one thousand"
to your bowl of egg whites.
mix until bubbly.
Then gradually pour in the jello mix while
mixing. Continue on until you have stiff peaks
in your meringue.
Now the fun part!
If you have an icing bag set you can certainly use that;
however if you don't just fill up some sandwich baggies
and cut the tip off one corner of the bag.
(that's how i roll!)
you will need about 5 baggies.
its easier to get new ones, than re-fill a used one.
squeeze out the meringue in little Hershey kiss
like drops onto your baking sheets.
you can make them larger if you like.
 Place one sheet on the bottom/middle rack and
the other on the top/middle rack in the oven and
cook for about 45 min. cook for 1 hour if you
make them thicker and fatter.

and TA DA!! you have some no carb yummy cookies!!
My fave. jello flavor to use is Raspberry.
This recipe makes about 200 bite size cookies,
but believe me, they will not last long.
We have yet to make them last more than 24 hrs!

Happy Low-Carb Eating everyone!
