Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Meringues
A meringue cookie made with Splenda
- 2 egg whites
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ⅓ cup Splenda Brown Sugar Blend or ¾ cup brown sugar
- 2 ounces hazelnuts -- toasted and coarsely chopped about 1 cup
- ⅓ cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. Line cookie sheets with parchment or Silpat.
In a medium bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Beat in vanilla and brown sugar blend or brown sugar. Fold in nuts and chips.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Drop dough on paper with a rounded teaspoon. Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and let cookies cool on baking sheet. If you'd prefer a crispier cookie, turn off heat in oven and let cookies sit in closed oven for a while. These freeze very well.
