Haven't had time to try this recipe yet, but if some kind soul out there would be sweet enough to try it and report the results back here so we will know whether or not it is worth the effort, I'm sure lots of people would appreciate it, including me.

Y'all are always one step ahead of me on recipes :p While waiting for my Endo appt, I was reading the NOLA newspaper and ran across this recipe for "Soupirs" or Meringue Kisses. I figured it to be easily made with the "cooking/baking" Splenda. I plan to make possibly by adding chopped pecans??

Bake this meringue cookie until lightly but well browned all over.

Makes about 3 dozen

4 large egg whites

1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

Pinch salt

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with brown paper bags or parchment paper.

Beat the egg whites, cream of tartar and salt in a bowl until the eggs hold soft peaks. Continue beating, gradually adding the sugar until stiff peaks form. Add the vanilla or almond extract and gently blend. Drop by teaspoonfuls on the prepared sheet pan. Bake until lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes.

Remove from the oven and cool away from any drafts. Or, turn off the oven, leave a crack in the door and let them cool gradually in the oven.
