Ingredients

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Nutritional Facts

1 cookie equals 33 calories, 1 g fat (1 g saturated fat), 0 cholesterol, 9 mg sodium, 6 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 1 g protein. Diabetic Exchange: 1/2 starch.

Directions

  1. Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 225°.
  2. Place sugar and strawberries in a food processor; process until powdery. Add gelatin; pulse to blend.
  3. Beat egg whites on medium speed until foamy, adding vanilla if desired. Gradually add gelatin mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high after each addition until sugar is dissolved. Continue beating until stiff glossy peaks form.
  4. Cut a small hole in the tip of a pastry bag or in a corner of a food-safe plastic bag; insert a #1M star tip. Transfer meringue to bag. Pipe 2-in. roses 1-1/2 in. apart onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
  5. Bake 40-45 minutes or until set and dry. Turn off oven (do not open oven door); leave meringues in oven 1-1/2 hours. Remove from oven; cool completely on baking sheets.
  6. Remove meringues from paper. Dip bottoms in melted chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set, about 45 minutes. Store in an airtight container at room temperature. Yield: 3-1/2 dozen.
