Recipe by jamb

These little devils are so good without all the guilt of sugar. I make all different flavors and mix food coloring in for a fun and easy change.

Top Review by Old Gray Grammy

Sorry to disagree with all but one reviewer here, but I must suggest that this recipe, especially the recipe's Ingredients List, is incorrect. Splenda's own recipe for meringues calls for 4 eggs, not 2, and only 1/4 t. of Cream of Tartar, not 1/2 t. It also calls for 1 t. vanilla extract, but no salt at all. The baking time and temperature are also different. I have made the recipe printed here, and agree with another reviewer that the texture is incorrect for meringue, and the nasty aftertaste comes from way too much Cream of Tartar.
