"A very light and airy low carb treat that satisfies any sweet tooth. You are able to change the flavor to suit your taste. The secret is sugar-free gelatin! This is an easy recipe and they bake up beautiful every time. My son enjoys strawberry. He says they taste like cotton candy!"

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Cut about 1/4 inch off a corner of a heavy gallon-size resealable plastic bag, and push a large-size cake decorating tip (such as a star tip) into the opening. The fit should be tight.
  3. In a small bowl, stir the gelatin mix with the sugar substitute. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites with cream of tartar and salt until stiff peaks form. As you beat the egg whites, gradually add the gelatin mixture, about 1 tablespoon at a time. Spoon the fluffy mixture into the prepared plastic bag, and gently squeeze and twist the bag to force the meringue mixture to the decorating tip. (Do not seal bag, so that air can escape.)
  4. Squeeze the bag to place golf-ball size dollops of meringue mixture onto the prepared baking sheets. For a decorative effect, twist and lift as you place the cookie on the sheet, to make a pretty shape.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the cookies are set and dry, about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Do not open oven door while baking. At end of baking time, turn off oven, open oven door, and allow the cookies to slowly cool in the oven before removing from baking sheets. Store in airtight container.

I added the entire box of geletin with the one cup of splenda. I also added 2 tsp of vanilla. I folded in 1/2 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips at the end. I set the oven at 200 and baked for...

I just made these, with a couple of small changes; I didn't have sugar free gelatin mix, so one batch I used instant decafe coffee, then made a second batch - divided in half...one half I added ...

These are great, but VERY sweet! Because of this, I strongly recommend making them smaller than golf balls (you can always have more than one!). It seems like most of the negative reviews are fr...

This is the first time I've tried sugar-free meringues, but I really liked them. I'm on a low carb diet and it is difficult to find something sweet and satisfying without giving in and sticking ...

For *sugar free* cookies these are great but I wouldn't make them again unless I needed a sugar free cookie. I notice that two of the reviewers for this cookie made substantial changes to the...

Awesome recipe if you're looking to satisfy you sweet tooth with virtually no calories. I screwed up my first batch by openeing the oven, but the second batch was perfect. They did have a bit ...

Weight Watchers delight! I also increased the amount of gelatin but kept everything else the same. Pretty, light, airy and sweet. Entire batch is 2 points on WW. Also made a second batch with PB...

Perfect for low carb! I made the strawberry and also made the same recipe and added 1 tsp vanilla then split the recipe in half and added 1 tbs unsweetened chocolate powder. They turned out grea...
